so it's (x-1)^2 (x-2) = 0 x = 2, 0 and does (x-1)^2 has an x value?
anonymous
  • anonymous
of course it does

oh so it's -1 and 1 also?

(x-1)^2 = 0 solve for x
anonymous

(x-1)(x-1)(x-2) = 0 correct? to find max and mins?
anonymous
  • anonymous
since (x-1)^2 is the same as (x-1) (x-1)

^ no (x^2 -1) = (x-1)(x+1)

how is it x^2 - 1? if the squared is outside the parenthesis?? it's not (x^2-1) because it says (x-1)^2? isn't that different? :0

what i'm saying is (x-1)^2 =/= (x-1)(x+1)

does not equal?
