Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2graphically for it to have 1 solution the vertex would have to be resting on the xaxis, thus the y_value would have to be 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Hero: What? +0 = 0 is a statement about zero and the unary minus ... compare to 8+0 = 80 ... and makes no claims about "positive" or "negative" ... 5 = +5 is false while 0 = +0 is true
