Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You might want to check my work over, but if you are trying to get the equation into slope intercept y= mx+b form then these are the steps. First, multiply the quadratic in the parentheses; y5=2(x^2+1). then multiply 2; y5=2x^22. Then add 5 over; y=2x^2+3. I will check this through, but this is my best for now

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oops! i meant intercept form as in y=(xr1)(xr2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I tried factoring, but you can't factor it. and I tried the quadratic equation but i'm getting 1+ 2sqrt10 which isn't right i think

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If it is not factorizable, then I think you can't convert that equation into Intercept Form..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0really? idk i know the intercepts are 2.581 an .581 though

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I mean you can't convert, but the person who knows how to convert, that person can convert. :P

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\(y = 2(x^2 + 1 + 2x) + 5 \implies y = 2x^2  4x+ 3\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let us go with Quadratic Formula for a moment: \[x_{1,2} = \frac{4 \pm 2\sqrt{10}}{4} \\ x_{1,2} = 1 \mp \frac{\sqrt{10}}{2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, yes you are right, you got the two intercepts right..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So: \(y = (x  0.581)(x + 2.581)\)
