    okay see to get x intercept plug y = 0 so it would be \[\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }(x + 2)^2 - 4 = 0\]

    so \[\frac{ 1 }{ 2 } (x + 2)^2 = 4\] get....

    to find x intercept u need to solve the equation \[\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }(x + 2)^2 = 4\] \[(x + 2)^2 = 8\]

    @clamin what operation is the exact opposite of squaring? ex: if I square 5 to get 25, how can I get back to 5?
