Without graphing, determine if the graph of each equation below has zero, one, or two ‑intercepts. Then describe the roots of each quadratic function. Show all work.

The graphs of these equations are all parabolas. To find the -intercepts, let and solve using the Quadratic Formula or factoring and the Zero Product Property.

  1. Two intercepts.

  1. No intercepts.
