Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Look at the red dots  that is the solution. http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=x%5E23x+%3D+10 Use the crosshairs to find a precise solution and plug into the equation to validate. The solution is where the curve, \(x^23x\) crosses the line \(y=10\). This happens at two locations. That's what this equation means.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there are different ways to solve this graphically, you can solve for the vertex first and then solve for the intercepts or you can just proceed and convert the equation into the "vertex" form by completing the square method if need be.
