In the above graph you see the functions f(x) = (x+3)(x-3) , g(x) = 0,5x^2 and h(x) = x-3

 

d. Calculate the x coordinates of the points of intersection of the graphs of f and g .

e. Theres the function notation j(x) = (x+ 2 1/2)^2 - 5 . Give by logically reasoning the coordinates of the top of the graph of function j

g(x) = 0.5x^2   

is NOT one of those graphs!

The curve labled g is not that function.

OK.... we've discovered   the graph of .5 x^2 is not there..... The question asks to CALCULATE the points of intersection...set the two GIVEN equations equal to each other and calculate the values of  x   where the graphs are equal....use these value(s) of x to substitute into either of the equations to calculate the corresponding y values.

 

(x+3)(x-3) = 0.5 x^2     solve for x's

x^2 -9 = 0.5 x^2           continue to solve for x   then sub into one of the original equations to find the corresponding y's.......

Okay so....

 

(x+3)(x-3) = 0.5x^2 + x + 3

x^2 -9 = 0.5x^2 + x + 3

10x^2 -90 = 5x^2 + 10x + 30

5x^2 + 10x + 30 = 10x^2 -90

5x^2 + 10x + 120 = 10x^2

5x^2 + 10x + 120 = 10x^2

-5x^2 + 10x + 120 = 0

 

What would you do now then? I'm kinda stuck oof

Whoops OP here, I accidentally missed a part of the function when reading over the assignment. g(x) = 0,5x^2 is supposed to be g(x) = 0,5x^2 + x + 3

I think you are better off to post it as a new CORRECT question.
