 Question 119261: I solved the quadratic equation of 3x^2+11x-20=0 by factoring and have the correct answer of x=4/3, -5. How would I solve graphically by creating a tchart with 6 points that will lie on the parabola. Finding the vertex will be helpful. The graphical work must be sufficient to determine the solutions without knowing them from algebraic work. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.

 Question 119345: If you could please help me on the steps when using the quadratic equation? I can identify the A,B and C variables and know the formula. And yet I can never seem to get the right solution. Can you break it down a bit for me? The site helps but it leaves me stuck as soon as I put in the variables. I think the problem is Im unsure how to solve what is going to be squared. If you have absolutely no idea what I'm saying I understand, I am bad at explaining things and would try again. Thank you for your help at any rate. ~S Click here to see answer by Fombitz(13828)
