and the figure is?
oh not a parabola
without the graph I can factor and find the answer: x^2 - 2x - 8 (x-4)(x+2) x-4 = 0 x = 4 x+2 = 0 x = -2
roots: x = 4, x = -2
Can you explain the process to me please?
yes, from what the question is telling you to do: the roots are going to be the x-intercepts of the graph. therefore we just need to find the x-intercepts.
which on the graph are clearly -2 and 4, do you see that?
okay yes i see that
so those are the solutions or roots
Ohh okay thats so easy than thank you!!
