How do I algebraically find the x-intercepts for this equation y = x^3 - 3x^2 + 3. I know I need to plug in y = 0 to solve for x. x^3 - 3x^2 + 3 = 0 But where do I go from there? I don't think I can factor, and I don't think I can use the quadratic formula.

physics- what did i do wrong
If the bus is 100 meters ahead of the car and the bus is travling at 65 km/hr and the car at 78km/hr, how long will it take the car to catch the bus? I used the following formula, but was informed my answer was wrong. 100m + (t) 65km/hr = 0 + (t)78km/hr and solved for (t). t...

construct a nondiagonal 2 x 2 matrix that is diagonalizable but not invertible. Just write down a diagonal matrix with one zero on the diagonal and then apply an orthogonal transformation. E.g. if you start with the matrix: A = [1 ,0 0,1] And take the orthogonal transformation...

the lim [as x goes to infinity] (.25)^x =0?? Yes, the limit is zero. The more times you multiply a number by 0.25 (which is what is happening when x goes to infinity), the smaller is the result.

Wallis's method of tangents
consider the curve defined by the equation y=a(x^2)+bx+c. Take a point(h,k) on the curve. use Wallis's method of tangents to show that the slope of the line tangent to this curve at the point(h,k) will be m= 2ah+b. have to prove this for tow cases: a>0 and a<0. Thank...
