y= -3/260x(3-260)

Thanks a bunch!

y= -3/260x(3-260)

Thanks a bunch!

G

solved for y:

y= -3

-----x(x-260)

260

x=0

y= -3

---- (0)(o-260)

260

y=0 (0) so the y intercepts are 0 and 0

I started for the x intercept, this is what I started:

0= -3

----- x(x-260)

260

the answer in my book says (0, 260) can you explain it to me????

I am sorry if I am being ambiguious.

G

there were no more parentheses than the ones I wrote from the book.

Code:

```
-3
0 = ----- x(x-260)
260
```

0 = (-3/260)*x*(x-260)

means the same thing.

Actually what you wrote was fine, it is just that so many people would write that when they mean -3/(260*x*(x-260)) that we get suspicious.

Divide by (-3/260) to get

0 = x(x-260)

For that to be true either

x = 0

or x = 260

The x intercepts are 0 and 260.

(Not (0,260) Maybe a long time ago but now that means the point where x=0 and y=260)

You were great help!
