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
