Let f(x)=\frac{(x-2)^2-9}{3}. The equation y=f(x) is graphed, and the x- and y-intercepts of the graph are connected to form a polygon. What is the area of that polygon?

\(y=\frac{(x-2)^2-9}{3}\)

 

 

If y is 0 then solve for x.

Hint: there are 2 answers

 

If x is 0 solve for y

there will be one answer.

 

Now you have 3 points, join them to form a triangle.

 

If you sketch it you will see the base and the height very easily.

Now find the area of the triangle.
