@saseal Could you please explain?

this is a quadratic equation, which makes it a parabola. since a for ax^2 is greater than 0 the parabola opens upward. if b^2-4ac=0, the curve theres only 1 x-intercept, instead of 2 roots

c is always your y-intercept

@saseal from b^2-4ac how did you find that there is only one root and where c is?

if you remember the y=mx+c equation, c is the y-intercept. thats how we know. c is always the constant number

how did you find that the equation moves to the left?

  • anonymous
this is something you need to figure it out by plugging the numbers in after you solve the equation

then x could be anywhere on the line, but your curve should only touch the x-axis once

the curve can be anywhere along the x-axis |dw:1438600611313:dw|
