Some homework practice I would like your assistance to prepare for exam.

y^2-6y+9=8 (exact solutions to three decimal places)
Y=_______

Solution: We have
y^2-6y+9=8
(y-3)^2=8
Extracting square roots, we obtain
y-3=±√8=±2√2
Adding 3 to both sides, we get
y=3±2√2
So y=3+2√2≈5.828 or y=3-2√2≈0.172

Solve 7x+x(x-4) = 0 the solution is x = _________
Find the x intercepts of f(x) = 7x+x(x-4) the x intercepts are _____

Solution: We have
7x+x^2-4x=0
x^2+3x=0
x(x+3)=0
x=0 or x+3=0
x=0 or x=-3

So the x-intercepts are (0,0) and (-3,0).

F(x) = -1/2x^2
The vertex is _______
Equation of the line symmetry is ________

Solution: We have

F(x)=-1/2 x^2=-1/2 〖(x-0)〗^2+0

So the vertex is (0,0) and the axis of symmetry is x=0.

(x+5)^2 = 16 (exact and approximate solutions to 3 decimal ...
