4-66.

Change the equation in the previous problem so that the parabola has only one x-intercept. Homework Help ✎

Remember that the parabola's vertex was

$\left(-\frac{3}{4}, -\frac{1}{8}\right)$

Remember that the only way for a parabola to have only one x-intercept is to have the vertex touching the x-axis.

To make it so the equation only has one x-intercept, you must make the vertex's y value equal 0.

$\textit{y}=2\textit{x}^{2}+3\textit{x}+\frac{9}{8}$
