From the January 2016 Common Core Algebra I Regents:
Y=, graph, table
Looking for zeros!!!
Where do you see the parabola crossing the x-axis on the graph?
For what values of x does y have a value of zero?
Look at the answers carefully — they are trying to trick us with negative signs!!
and that’s it!! You just got 2 more points awesome!!!
PS on Parts II, II, IV you would be expected to factor this but with multiple choice
