the x-intercept when y = 0 set the function = 0 and factor to find the x-values the y-intercept when x = 0 substitute x = 0 in the function and compute y to the nearest hundredth means to 2 decimal places
you have to read the response I actually did the problem for you too read again and let me know where you are stuck so I can clear up the confusion
ok you need to read my response and then you would do the last step x = -5.09 -3 and x = +5.09-3 what are the final x values? we know that y = 0
do not look for direct answers only which we are not allowed to give anyway always ask for more help if you don't understand the response given
do you see the match now?
* correction use 5.10 as the square root of 26
when x = 0 x^2 + 6x -17 means (0)^2 + 6(0) - 17 =
wouldnt that be -17?
yes! so what is the y-intercept ?
(0, -17) yes
so the answer is b,b,b? correct?
more important do you see why?
yes i understand it more thank you
great you are welcome
