Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well it can work but the parabola is positive definite, meaning it doesn't have x intercepts.. you could try y = x^2 6x + 5 that works

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to find the yintercept let x = 0 so y = 0  0 + 5 so the yintercept is y = 5 x intercepts let y = 0 so solve \[x^2  6x + 5 = 0\] find the factors of 5 that add to 6 both are negative then the factored form of the equation is (x  factor 1)(x  factor 2) = 0 then find the values of x that make each factor equal zero x  factor 1 = 0 x  factor 2 = 0 these values will be the x intercepts

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok so now that I have the y intercept i have to find out the zeros
