8)a)Solve 7x+x(x-2)=0
b)Find the x-intercepts of f(x)=7x+x(x-2)

(a) 7x + x^2 - 2x = 0
x^2 + 5x = 0
x(x + 5) = 0
x = {-5, 0} are the solutions.
(b) The x-intercepts are (-5, 0) and (0, 0).

15) Find the vertex, the line of symmetry, the maximum or minimum value of the quadratic function and graph the function: f(x)=2x2-8x+6

f(x) = 2x^2 - 8x + 6 = 2(x^2 - 4x + 4) - 2 = 2(x - 2)^2 - 2
(a) Vertex is (2, -2)
(b) The line of symmetry is x = 2
(c) f(x) has a minimum value of -2 at x = 2
(d) Graph:

16) Find the ...
