- Write expressions in equivalent forms by factoring to find the zeros of a quadratic function and explain the meaning of the zeros.
- Given a quadratic function explain the meaning of the zeros of the function. That is if f(x) = (x – c) (x – a) then f(a) = 0 and f(c) = 0.
- Given a quadratic expression, explain the meaning of the zeros graphically. That is for an expression (x – a) (x – c), a and c correspond to the x-intercepts (if a and c are real).
