 Question 234003: Use the quadratic formula to determine the x-intercepts (if any) of the following function f(x) = 3x2 i can grapg this buy substituting a number for x and that would give me y. but if i use that quadratic formula i need an a,b,c and i only have an a. therfore i believe that i cant get the x intersepts by using the quadratic formula what di you think Click here to see answer by scott8148(6628)

 Question 234012: Use the quadratic formula to determine the x-intercepts (if any) of the following function. Then evaluate the function for several values of x, and use the resulting points to graph the function f(x) = 3x2 ok i figured out that by using the qaudratic formula my answer is x=0 so i guess how do figure out my x intercepts and how do i come up with other points so that i can graph this.

 Question 234272: I am stumped on these equations. I have to solve them with the following steps: a) Move the constant term to the right side of the equation. b) Multiply each term in the equation by four times the coefficient of the x squared term. c) Square the coefficient of the original x term and add it to both sides of the equation. d) Take the square root of both sides. e) Set the left side of the equation to the positive square root of the right side and solve for x. f) Set the left side of the equation equal to the negative square root of the right side and solve for x. The equations I am stumped on are: x^2+12x-64 2x^2-3x-5=0 Click here to see answer by Earlsdon(6294)
