What is the x-intercept of the graph of the function f(x) = x2 − 16x + 64? (−8, 0) (0, 8) (8, 0) (0, −8)

It's (8,0).

If you graph this function you can see that the parabola has an x-intercept at (8,0). This also happens to be the vertex and minimum as well.

Describe the graph of the function f(x) = x3 − 11x2 + 36x − 36. Include the y-intercept, x-intercepts, and the shape of the graph.

1) y-intercept => x = 0, => y = f(0) = 0 - 0 + 0 - 36 = -36

2) x-intercept => y = 0 => factor the function (start by dividing by x -2)

f(x) = (x-2)(x-3)(x-6) =0 => x =2, x = 3, x = 6 (these are the x-intercepts)

3) critical points:

between x = 2 and x = 3, there is a local maximum

between x =3 and x = 6 there is a local minimum

3) Shape.

The function comes growing from - infinity.

In the third quadrant the function is negative (it does not pass throuhg the second quadrant)

It enters to the fourth quadrant intercepting the y-axis at y = -36. It continues growing and intercepts the x-axis at x = 2.

It continues increasing until a maximum local positive value, starts to decrease, intercepts the x-axis at x = 3, continues decreasing, becomes negative, gets a local minimum in the fourth quadrant, starts to increase, intercepts the x-axis at x = 6, becomes positive, and continues growing.

For these questions find the x- and y- intercept. 1. -10x+5y=40 a. x-intercept is 5; y-intercept is -10 b. x-intercept is 8; y-intercept is -4 c. x-intercept is -10; y-intercept is 5 d. x-intercept is -4; y-intercept is 5 2. 5x+4y=80 a. x-intercept is 4; y-intercept is 5 b. x-intercept is 20; y-intercept is 16 c. x-intercept is 5; y-intercept is 4 d. x-intercept is 16; y-intercept is 20 Please help, I don't understand these.

Background: you find an x-intercept when you set y to be zero and you get the y-intercept when you set x to be zero. In a graph this is the point of the equation that passes through the X and Y axis. ( I will do question number 1 and I will let you try question number 2 )

1. -10x + 5y = 40
to find x-intercept set y=0
= -10x + 5(0) = 40     since 5(0) = 0
= -10x = 40  divide both sides by -10 to find X
=> x = 40/-10 = -4
=> the x-intercept for the above equation is -4

to find y-intercept set x = 0
= -10(0) + 5y = 40  since -10(0) = 0
= 0 + 5y = 40
=> 5y = 40 divide both sides by 5 to get the value of Y
=> y = 40/5 = 8
=> the y-intercept for the above equation is 8

Find the x-intercepts of the parabola with vertex (-3,-18) and y-intercept at (0,0)

Y + 18 = a(x + 3)^2
0 + 18 = a(0 + 3)^2
18 = 9a
2 = a

y = 2(x + 3)^2 - 18
0 = 2(x + 3)^2 - 18
18 = 2(x + 3)^2
9 = (x + 3)^2
± 3 = x + 3
-3 ± 3 = x
x = 0 or -6

(0, 0) and (-6, 0)

Nina knows that the average of the x-intercepts represents the line of symmetry for a quadratic function through the x-axis. Which equation represents the average of the x-intercepts for f(x) = 4x2 – 24x + 20?

Number of x intercepts in this equation is 2 because max power in the function is 2. number of x intercepts is determined by "highest power".

let x1 represent first x intercept and
let x2 represent second x intercept

Formula for finding average of x intercepts is logicaly:
Avg = (x1 + x2)/2

we want to find x1 and x2
4x^2 - 24x + 20 = 0
x^2 - 6x + 5 = 0 x1 = 5
x2 = 1

Avg = 3

How many x-intercepts are there in y = –3x2 + 4x + 4

You can factor it to find the answer:

–3x^2 + 4x + 4
–(3x^2 - 4x - 4)
–(3x + 2)(x - 2)

x=-2/3 or 2, which means that there are  x intercepts, at -2/3 and 2.

Which equation, when graphed, has x-intercepts at (−1, 0) and (−5, 0) and a y-intercept at (0, −30)? f(x) = −6(x + 1)(x + 5) f(x) = −6(x − 1)(x − 5) f(x) = −5(x + 1)(x + 5) f(x) = −5(x − 1)(x − 5)

Option A

Step-by-step explanation:

The equation has x intecepts at -1 and -5.

Hence function would be of the form

a(x+1)(x+5) for some real a.

To find a, let us use y intercept

When x =0 we have y =a(1)(5)

y intercept is given as -30

i.e. 5a = -30

a=-6

So

f(x) = -6(x+1)(x+5)

Option A is the right answer.

The equation that represents the canned goods order is 24x + 64y = 384, where x = number of minutes producing fruit cans and y = number of minutes producing vegetable cans. What is the real world meaning of the x-intercept?

Substitute 0 for the x-value in the equation and solve for y. The result is y = 6, so the y-intercept is at (0, 6). Next, substitute 0 for the y-value in the equation and solve for x. The result is x = 16, so the x-intercept is at (16, 0).

What is the equation of the line with an x-intercept of -1 and a y-intercept of 2? A) y = 2x - 2 B) y = - 2x + 2 C) y = 2x + 2

The equation of the line for this question can be stated as,

What does y = when x is -1 or

What does x = when y is 2

So since the slope of the line is 2, we can assume that B and C must be the answers but since you want one answer we need to be more accurate.
