How do you find the zeros of # y = 3/2x^2 + 3/2x +9/2 # using the quadratic formula?
Finding the zeroes of the function is the same as solving the following equation:
Because fractions are quite annoying to deal with, I will multiply both sides by
Now we can use the quadratic formula, which says that if we have a quadratic equation in the form:
The solutions will be:
In this case, we get:
