Hello, sjenkins!

Make a sketch . . .The graph of y=(3x-x)^.5 is a semi-circle with diameter coincident

with the positive x-axis, radius 1.5, center at (1.5,0).

. . All this is all true . . . but who needs it ??

Create a function passing through (3.5, 5) and intersecting the x-axis at x=2 and x=5.We can see that aCode:| | (3½,5) | * | | | - - + - * - - - * - - | 2 5parabolawill work.

From the two x-intercepts, we have: .

To pass through , we have: .

. .

Therefore: .
