Two parabolas are the graphs of the equations $y=2x^2-10x-10$ and $y=x^2-4x+6$.. Give all points where they intersect. List the points in order of increasing $x$-coordinate, separated by semicolons.

To solve this, set the functions equal

 

2x^2 -  10x - 10  =  x^2  - 4x  +  6       rearrange as

 

x^2 -  6x -  16  =  0      factor as

 

(x - 8)  ( x + 2)  = 0    

 

Setting each  factorto 0 and solving for x, we have that x  = 8  and x  = -2

 

So....using   x^2  - 4x +  6   we can find the two y values

 

(-2)^2  -4(-2)  +  6  =  18  ⇒  (-2, 18)

 

8^2  -  4(8)   +  6    =  38  ⇒  (8, 38)

 

 

cool cool cool
