I am asked to use algebra to find the x and y intercepts from the following equation;
y = - x^2 + 3x + 8
Note; - x^2 above means - x^2 and - 2, I can't get the minus sign in the right place.
Am I working along the right lines here;
2y = - 2x^2 + 3x + 8
2y = x^2 + 8
y = x^2 + 8 - 2
y = x^2 + 6
I am not really sure I have understood the question?
