4-22.

Solve $(x−3)^2−2=x+1$ graphically. Is there more than one way to do this? Explain. 4-22 HW eTool (Desmos). Homework Help ✎.

Graph $y=(x−3)^2−2$ and $y=x+1$.

What part of the points of intersection will make this equation true?
Are there any y-values in the original equation?

Another way to do this is to expand $(x−3)^2$ and reorganize the equation
so it is equal to 0.

Now you can graph $y=x^2−7x+6$ and $y=0$. What part of the graph are
you looking at now?

Use the eTool below to solve the equation graphically.
