Identify the equation of the graph shown.

A)y = 2x + 3

B)y = 2x - 3

C)y = -2x + 3

D)y = -2x - 3

Tammy knows that the factors of a polynomial are ƒ(x) = (x - 2)(x - 1)(x + 4) and the solutions are x = -4, 1, and 2. Which graph models the polynomial?

C)

D)

The first one is easy....the slope is negative  and the y intercept   is  3

In the form  y  =  mx  + b, m is the slope  and b is the y intercept

So...  the equation  y  =  -2x + 3   is the only one with a negative slope and a y intercept of 3

For the second...if -4, 1 and 2   are  solutions   to   0  = (x + 4)(x - 1)(x - 2)......so the graph intercepts the x axis  at   x = -4, x = -1  and x  = 2

"D" looks to be correct
