 Question 379999: Please help me! I am stuck and don't know if I'm doing this right and it's due tomorrow!!! I am confused when I am letting y=0 and solving for x using the quadratic formula... that is where I get stumped. y=x^2-2x-2 I need to find the vertex and any two convenient points to sketch the graph. This is what I've done so far and I will note when I get confused. Letting y=0 {0=-(2)+- sqrt(-2)^2-4(1)(2)all over 2} then I end up with {x=2+- sqrt(-4)} over 2 I do not know where to get next. Do I divide the 2 into the 2 and 4? Then that would give me -1 +- 2 right??? Then I would set them to zero and have my x points? I have solved for y by letting x=0 y=o^2-2(0)-2 y=-2 (0,-2) I have found the vertex by using: x=b/2(a) x=2/2(1) y=(1)^2-2(1)-2 x=1 y= -3 giving me plots of (1,-3) I really hope someone can help me. I know it is late but I have run out of resources. Thanks D. Click here to see answer by jim_thompson5910(28593)
