4.5 Inequalities Involving Quadratic Functions To solve a quadratic inequality using the graph, graph the inequality and find its x-intercepts. For f(x) > 0 (strict), find those values of x for which the curve is above the x-axis; and for f(x) < 0 (strict), find those values of x for which the curve is below the x-axis. If the inequality is not strict, e.g., f(x)

Unformatted text preview: ≥ 0 or f(x) ≤ 0, include the x-intercepts in the solution. Given f(x) = x 2 + 2x – 15 and g(x) =x – 9, solve f(x) = g(x) and graph each equation: 1. Find f(x) > 0 2. f(x) ≤ 0 3. f(x) ≥ g(x) Given f(x) = - x 2 – x + 1 and g(x) = -x 2 + x + 6, solve f(x) = g(x) and graph each equation: 4. Find f(x) > -5 5. g(x) ≤ -6 6. f(x) ≥ g(x)...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
