Question 1) f(x) = 3×2+ 5x -2 a) Write an equation that can be used to find the zeros of the function. b) What are the zeros of the function?

Here you go: a) f(x)= (3x-1)(x+2) This is factoring. It helps you find the zeros if you set this equal to zero. You can clearly identify what the zeros are. b) (3x-1)(x+2)=0 x=1/3, x=-2 Plug those back into the equation to see if they work. In this case they do so those are your answers. Log in to Reply

b) (3x-1)(x+2)=0

x=1/3, x=-2

Plug those back into the equation to see if they work. In this case they do so those are your answers.
