(b) Draw a complete graph of the function f ( x ) = 3 x 2 + 6 x – 9, and label the x - and y - intercepts. 3. Solve the systems of equations. A) 2 62 8 5 yx x += B) 32 2 22 63 0 x x =− + (a) First solve graphically. (i) For each equation, give the degree, the number of roots, and the end behavior. (ii) Sketch the graphs by hand. You should be able to find all of the roots algebraically. (iii) Solve each system by using a suitable graphical technique on your calculator. (b) Solve algebraically. (Try not to use the information that you gained from part a) to help you. Work through the entire problem.) 4. A ball is thrown up at 88 feet per second from a height of 25 feet.
