Tutors, sign in to answer this question.

Another name is the zeros of the function, when y is zero, the graph cross the x-axis

The answer is x-intercepts, Nataliya already answer the question. I just add some explanations to it.

If b^{^2} - 4ac >0

X_{ vertex } is half way between roots.

Roots are ( X_{1, }X_{2) }X _{vertex } = ( X_{1 + }X _{2 }) / 2, Y intercept is always equal c ,

So having all this information you can plot the curve.

If b^{2 }- 4ac <0 , then there is no X intercept, only find the vertex X_{vertex =
}-b/2a, and Y intercept = c.

b. x-intercepts
