Let a and b be real numbers, where a < b, and let A = (a,a^2) and B = (b,b^2). The line AB (meaning the unqiue line that contains the point A and the point B) has x-intercept (-3/2,0) and y-intercept (0,1).  Find a and b.  Express your answer as the ordered pair (a,b).

y = mx + 1

y = 2/3x + 1

 

That's our line equation. :))

n^2 = 2/3n + 1

3n^2 = 2n + 3

3n^2 - 2n - 3 = 0

Can you solve for the 2 values of n from here?
