    usually it's f(x) = x^2 - 9

    ok, soooooo. huh... I guess f(x) = x?? lol

    weird. then it should be f(y) = y^2 -9 because we are dealing with a function of y

    f(x) = x^2 - 9

    AND there is no need to use the quadratic because you can factor this! x^2 - 9 = x^2 - 3^2 = (x+3) (x-3) so x is simply plus or minus 3! use the quadratic? for what! lol

    well, the roots are -3 and 3 but anywyay with the quadratic you want to use (1)x^2 + 0x - 9 a = 1 b = 0 c = -9
