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

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

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

    x = −5 and x = −0.5?

    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 ._.

    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 :/

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

    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

    look again at the regular number line review positive and negative

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