# Grand Canyon University X Intercepts and Quadratic Functions Worksheet

Description

Solve the problems uploaded on the screenshot as well as the following:This DQ continues our examination of quadratic functions, i.e functions of the form f(x) = ax2+bx+c where a,b,c are real coefficients. This one here asks us about x-intercepts which is actually the most useful aspect of quadratic modeling, at least from my point of view.Imagine you were interested in when exactly your profit in a business were to hit \$0? Or when precisely the ball you just threw will hit the ground? These are x-intercepts because it is the value x at which f(x) = 0. (profit = 0, height = 0, etc)some discussion points:1. Suppose you had to write the question that everyone is to solve this week, what would you write2. This is an unrelated question but I am still interested: What are your thoughts about Excel in a math class? Do you think we should just only teach Excel and not algebra, or no Excel at all? Is Excel even related to algebra??

My writer had to change some ideas that she misunderstood. She was really nice and kind.
Kelvin J.
I have used other writing websites and this by far as been way better thus far! =)
