The y -intercept is (0, -3). If there are any x -intercepts, they will occur when f(x) = 0. We use the quadratic formula to solve 2 x 2 + 4 x 3 = 0 for x . Because yields an imaginary number, there are no real roots. Thus, there are no x -intercepts for the graph of the function. That is, the graph does not intersect the x -axis. We know that the parabola opens downward . Thus, the vertex is a maximum value at (1, 1). Since this graph has no x -intercepts, we will look for three additional points to help us in drawing the graph. We try f (2), f (3), and f ( 1).
