At how many points does the graph of y = (x-6)^2 intersect the x-axis?

A: Two.

  • Algebra 1--Please, check my answer! -

    If x = 6, bang
    if x = 6 bang
    so at ONE point
    x = 6 which is the vertex of the parabola. It just grazes the x axis and both roots are right there.

    I'm sorry but I'm slightly confused. How does x = 6 when the graph is y =(x-6)^2?

  • Algebra 1--Please, check my answer! -

    When x = 6
    (x-6) = 0
    so
    y = 0 when x = 6
    That is when it hits the x axis
