Prove the x-coordinate of this equation.

Not sure if you'd need a picture of the graph or not; don't think you would.

It just looks like an upside down parabola, but starts at 0 and cuts back through the x-axis.

The curve (C) has the equation

,

The point A on C is a stationary point (is just a point at where the parabola turns back down [the tiny bit where it's flat]), and C cuts the x-axis at the point B.

**Show that the x-coordinate of B is 3.**

[I would of thought that if i substituted 3 into the above equation, y would equal 0?] it equals -9 however.

**Find the coordinates of A.**
