Unformatted text preview: For example, in the following graph, the solutions to the quadratic equation are x = -3 and x = -2, since the graph crosses the x-axis at (-3, 0) and (-2, 0). If the graph never crosses the x-axis, such as in the following case, then the equation doesn’t have any real-number solutions: Finally, if the graph only touches the x-axis at one place, the equation has only one solution, such as it happens with the graph of y = (x + 1) 2 , shown next.
