OK....we have

 

x^2 -4x -32

 

15.   To find the x intercepts  set the above to 0  and factor

 

x^2 - 4x - 32 = 0

 

(x - 8) ( x + 4) = 0

 

Setting each factor to 0 and solving for  x we have that

 

x - 8 = 0               and       x + 4 = 0

x = 8                                  x = -4

 

So...the x intercepts (roots) are x = 8 and x = -8

 

 

16.    the discriminant is

 

(-4)^2 -  4 (1) (-32)

 

16 + 128

 

144

 

When the discriminant is > 0.....we will have two real roots

 

 

cool cool cool
