Given f(x) = ex2 + fx + g, where e, f, and g are real numbers,
(a) Find the zeros of the function in terms of e, f, and g.
(b) Under what condition would the zeros of the given function be two distinct real values?
(c) Determine the x-coordinate (the x-value) of the point that would represent the minimum or the maximum of the graph of the function by taking the average (mean value) of the zeros of the function found in Part (a).
(d) Under what condition would the graph of the function have a maximum, not a minimum, with the x-value obtained in Part (c)?
(e) Draw the graph of a function, with numerical coefficients of your choice, to represent your thought on what you stated in Part (d).

Radicals and Rational Exponents and Applications of Logarithms (Loudness of Sound)

While the radical symbol is widely used, converting to rational exponents has advantages. Explain an advantage of rational exponents over the radical sign. Include an example of an equation easier to solve as a rational exponent rather then a radical sign.

2)The loudness of sound is based on intensity level measured in decibels using a logarithmic scale and is relative to (a ratio of) the weakest sound the ear can hear.
How is sound measured. The formula for measuring sound.
