Part A) Calculate the value of the discriminant of x^2+x+3=0 Part B) by examining teh sign of the discriminant in part a, how many x-intercepts would the graph of y = x^2+x+3 have? Why? I know that to get the discrimant the equation is b^2 - 4ac, and that if the discriminant is positive the the solutions will be real numbers, and if it is a negative you will have two complex solutions. but how do I solve this if I do not know what the value of b is or the value of A and C1 solutions Answer 94123 by jim_thompson5910(28476)   on 2008-02-23 22:06:57 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! From the quadratic formula the discriminant consists of all of the terms in the square root. So the discriminant is the discriminant tells us how many solutions (and what type of solutions) we can expect for any quadratic. Now let's find the discriminant for (notice how , and ): Start with the given equation Plug in a=1, b=1, c=3 Square 1 to get 1 Multiply -4*1*3 to get -12 Combine 1 and -12 to get -11 Since the discriminant equals -11 (which is less than zero) , this means there are two complex solutions. Notice if we graph , we get and we can see that there are two complex solutions. So this visually verifies our answer.

 Functions/128579: Find the domain and range of the following: 1 solutions Answer 94078 by jim_thompson5910(28476)   on 2008-02-23 13:06:45 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Looking at the graph, notice how the graph extends to infinity in both directions in the x direction. So this shows us that there are no restrictions on the domain. Since we don't have any restrictions on the domain, this shows us that the domain is all real numbers. In other words, we can plug in any in for x So the domain of the function in set-builder notation is: In plain English, this reads: x is the set of all real numbers (In other words, x can be any number) Also, in interval notation, the domain is: --------------------------------------------------- From the graph, we can see that the lowest point is (0,-3). So the smallest that y can be is -3 So the range of the function in set-builder notation is: In plain English, this reads: y is the set of all real numbers that are greater than or equal to -3 Also, in interval notation, the range is: [-3,)

Looking at the graph, notice how the line extends to infinity in all four directions. So this shows us that there are no restrictions on the domain. Since we don't have any restrictions on the domain, this shows us that the domain is all real numbers. In other words, we can plug in any in for x So the domain of the function in set-builder notation is: In plain English, this reads: x is the set of all real numbers (In other words, x can be any number) Also, in interval notation, the domain is: --------------------------------------------------- Also, since there are no restrictions on the range, this means that the range is all real numbers. So the range of the function in set-builder notation is: In plain English reads: y is the set of all real numbers (In other words, y can be any number) Also, in interval notation, the range is:
 Functions/128577: Find the domain and range of the following: 1 solutions Answer 94076 by jim_thompson5910(28476)   on 2008-02-23 12:53:07 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Looking at the graph, notice how both the x-values and y-values are restricted. In other words, we cannot plug in x=10 (as it does not fall on the curve). So we can only plug in x-values from -4 to 4. So the domain is which in set-builder notation is In plain English, this reads: x is the set of all real numbers that are in between -4 and 4 Also, in interval notation, the domain is: [-4,4] ------------------------------- This also applies to the range. The range is also . Which in set-builder notation is In plain English, this reads: y is the set of all real numbers that are in between -4 and 4 Also, in interval notation, the range is: [-4,4] -------------------------- Summary: So the domain and range are both [-4,4]

Looking at , we can see that there are no square roots, logs, and other functions where there are restrictions on the domain. Also, we can see that the function does not have a division by x (or any combination of variables and constants). So we don't have to worry about division by zero. Since we don't have any restrictions on the domain, this shows us that the domain is all real numbers. In other words, we can plug in any in for x So the domain of the function in set-builder notation is: In plain English reads: x is the set of all real numbers (In other words, x can be any number) Also, in interval notation, the domain is: Now to find the range, simply graph the function to get From the graph, we can see that the lowest point is (2,0). So the smallest that y can be is 0 So the range of the function in set-builder notation is: In plain English reads: y is the set of all real numbers that are greater than or equal to 0 Also, in interval notation, the range is: [0,)

Remember, dividing by 0 is undefined. So if we find values of x that make the denominator zero, then we must exclude them from the domain. Subtract 9 from both sides Combine like terms on the right side Since makes the denominator equal to zero, this means we must exclude from our domain So our domain is: which in plain English reads: x is the set of all real numbers except So our domain looks like this in interval notation note: remember, the parenthesis excludes -9 from the domain --------------------------------------------------------- Now to find the range, simply graph the function to get note: ignore the vertical lines, they are not part of the graph and are asymptotes Looking at the graph, we can see that y can be any number except 0. So . So our range is: which in plain English reads: y is the set of all real numbers except So our range looks like this in interval notation note: remember, the parenthesis excludes 0 from the range e) Start with the given function Set the denominator equal to zero. Remember, dividing by 0 is undefined. So if we find values of x that make the denominator zero, then we must exclude them from the domain. Factor the left side (note: if you need help with factoring, check out this solver) Now set each factor equal to zero: or or Now solve for x in each case So our solutions are or Since and make the denominator equal to zero, this means we must exclude and from our domain So our domain is: which in plain English reads: x is the set of all real numbers except or So our domain looks like this in interval notation note: remember, the parenthesis excludes -2 and 2 from the domain --------------------------------------------------------- Now to find the range, simply graph the function to get note: ignore the vertical lines, they are not part of the graph and are asymptotes Looking at the graph, we can see that y can be any number except 0. So . So our range is: which in plain English reads: y is the set of all real numbers except So our range looks like this in interval notation note: remember, the parenthesis excludes 0 from the range
