 Question 130315: To you that have answered my previous questions, thank you! They are not being mailed to me so I cannot leave a thank you note. I have two more questions before my final, if I can get help, please. 1.) Find the x-intercepts and y-intercepts for f(x)=x^2-7x+10 I was able to get the x-intercepts as (5, 0), (2, 0) However, I do not know how to get the y-intercepts. I plugged 0 in for x but wouldn;t that make y=(0, 0) and don't you need two for y like you have two for x? 2.) I need to know how for sure to Determine which type of function is used as a model for data, for the scatterplot graph. I have graphs to look at, yet when the line is straight I put lienear and it was wrong, and yet one with curvy lines was a linear. How do I determine correctly every time . Thanks in advance for the help in case I do not receive an email. Click here to see answer by stanbon(57250)

 Question 130636: IN MY ALGEBRA 2 BOOK ON PAGE 296 I'M HAVING A HARD TIME UNDERSTANDING HOW I FIND THE SOLUTION. THE SOLUTION FUNCITON IS, X=-b+ - SQUARE UNDER b SQ. 2 -4ac/2a.okay now how do I fiqure out the solution? I'm stuck at this p.for ex.x sq.2 minus 4x + 10=0,using the discriminant function i've got ( -4)sq.2 -4(1)(10)=24.i know how to set the solution function up (X=-b+ - SQUARE UNDER b SQ. 2 -4ac/2a) x=-4+ - sq.root4 sq.2 minus 4(1)(10). now where do i go from there.i don't understand how to first solve it. do i use a calculator for that part or not? well I reallywould appreciate if you can help me out with my problem , it would mean alot to me, since my test on this is on friday, at my school! thanks!
