 Question 361342: Hi, I was wondering if someone could possibly help me. I am supposed to do these homework questions in my Algebra class, but I am having a hard time getting started. I don't know what steps to go through to obtain the answer. The back of the book shows the answers, but that doesn't help me much. I need to show I got to the answer. If anyone could possibly assist me, by showing me how you obtained the answer, I would be forever grateful! :o) Section 11.2, Pg. 762, #3. Directions: Solve each equation using the quadratic formula, simplify solutions, if possible. 〖2x〗^2-7x=-5 (the first part should read 2x squared) the answer it shows in the back of the book is: {1,5/2} Answer by stanbon(57203)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!a)Find vertex of quadratic g(x)=(x-2)^2-1 Vertex: (2,-1) ----- b) determine the # of x intercepts Since the vertex is below the x-axis and since the parabola opens upward, it intersects the axis at two points. ------------------------------- C)graph this quadratic function by 2 points on the parabolax--- Solve (x-2)^2-1 = 0 x-2 = 1 or x-2 = -1 x = 3 or x = 1 ---- ----------------- Cheers, Stan H.
