12-117.

For each pair of points given, write an equation for a quadratic function in standard form that has these

*x*-intercepts. Homework Help ✎a. (−3, 0) and (2, 0)

b. (−3, 0) and (

, 0)

Work backwards: use the zero product property to write an equation in factored form, then simplify.

*x* = −3 or *x* = 2*x* + 3 = 0 or *x* − 2 = 0

(*x* + 3)(*x* − 2) = 0*x*² + *x* − 6 = *y*
