For example, left 1 or rotated about the y-axis are descriptions. a) g(x) = e^x - 2 b) h(x) = - e^x 2) Describe the transformations

Which solution is right?

Solution 1: x has the solution of -1/2 or 4 it means x-0.5 or x-4 is equal to zero => (x-0.5)(x-4)=0 =>x^2 -4.5x+2=0 =>2x^2-9x+4=0 Solution 2: x = -1/2 and x = 4 (x+1/2)(x-4)=0 (x+1/2)(x-8/2)=0 x2-7/2x-2=0 2x2-7x-4=0
