Question:

Determine the roots of y = x to the power 2 - 3x + 2


Answer:


y = x^(2 - 3x + 2)

y = x^(2 + 2 - 3x)

y = x^(4- 3x)

the roots are found when y = 0

0 = x^(4- 3x)

The equation has no solution.

This is an exponential function.

The value of “y” is always positive. “y” approaches zero, but is never equal to zero (regardless of the value of x).
