Based on the graph below, what is the solution of the equation f(x) = g(x)?
graph of function f of x equals negative x plus 0.5 and graph of function g of x equals x squared plus 3 multiplied by x minus 4
x = −4 and x = 1
x = −5 and x = 0.9
x = −4 and x = 0.5
x = −5 and x = −0.5

solution is when f(x) = g(x)
set the functions equal and solve for x

- triciaal

you have the graph just look where they cross and read off the x- values

ok but it crosses 2 times so I choose both times it crosses?

- triciaal

yes

- anonymous

I think its D or B

- triciaal

in addition to that look at the options

- anonymous

I am going for D tho....

- triciaal

look at the graph where do the lines cross

- anonymous

-5 and a little before 1 so that is why anything would be 0.5 or 0.9

- triciaal

read the x-axis

- triciaal

a little before +1

- anonymous

Yes a little befroe +1

- anonymous

*before

- triciaal

so what is the correct solution

- anonymous

x = −5 and x = −0.5?

stop playing

I am not playing ._.

Ok and I see what you mean BUT there is a flaw, none of the Answers have a negative and Obviously the first line crosses on -5 and the second one is a little before +1 but there is nothing but 0 before one and after Zero everything is Negative thus there CANNOT be a Negative product from both sides since the answer choices say so.... kind of... anyway It must be D or B I am being completely and utterly realistic here I am not playing I am simply Stating what I see from the picture ._.

- triciaal

i only see -5 and 0.9 choice B

- anonymous

Ok... Thanks for your help

- anonymous

I kind of see that too but I saw the line a bit closer to one and that lead me to think it was 0.5 and not 0.9 :/

- triciaal

what do you mean none of the answers have a negative they all start with -4 and -5

- anonymous

That was me miss placing what I meant of course they start with Negatives but none on the other side did they where all 0.5 or 0.9

- triciaal

look again at the regular number line review positive and negative

- triciaal

so you look at the point and see it is almost 1 so closer to 1 therefore 0.9

- triciaal

sometimes you have to go back to basics

- anonymous

Alright I looked at it backwards then now I understand what you mean ._.

- triciaal

ok don't overthink the problems
you are welcome
