 Question 245946: Quadratic Functions and Equations The first question I gave it go at. Solve. 3t^2-2=0 +2+2 3t^2=2 ______ 3 3 t^2=2/3 or (I don't know how to do the square root sign on here.) _ ______ _ _ __________ V2/3 or V 2/3 Hope I did it right. Then the next is also solve. x^2+7=3x Now so far all I have done is taken 3x from both sides which brings us to x^2-3x+7=0 At this point I am lost. Because normally I would think we would do this but I can't find anything to add up to equal 3 (x )(x )=0 So I am stuck with this problem. Last problem I am having is one that I got so confused w/ the process that I couldn't even start it. I am just lost. It states: For each quadratic function, (a) find the vertex and the axis of symmetry and (b) graph the function. g(x)=2x^2+5x-1 I know we follow the form of a(x-h)^2+k. But I am so lost at this. I know it is most likely real easy but I am lost. Click here to see answer by richwmiller(9135)
