graph the parabola y=2x^2-6x-3. plot point on the parabola A[1,-7] and draw a line through A with an angle of inclination equal to 30 degrees. then find the equation of the line and its second point of intersection B, with the parabola

  • precalculus -

    Just take this one step at a time:

    a line with inclination 30° has slope tan30° = 1/√3

    Now we have a point and a slope, so that line is

    (y+7)/(x-1) = 1/√3
    y = 1/√3 x - (7+1/√3)

    Now find where that line intersects the parabola:

    2x^2 - 6x - 3 = 1/√3 x - (7 + 1/√3)
    x = 1
    x = 2 + 1/(2√3) or 2.288

    The second point of intersection is thus
    (2 + 1/(2√3) , 1/(2√3) - 41/6)
    or (2.288,-6.256)
