# Trig

Use a graphical method to find a solution to the following system of equations in the interval –1 ≤ x ≤ 5:

y = x2 – 4x + 2
y = x + 2
The solution set to this system of equations in the interval –1 ≤ x ≤ 5 is

{}
{(2, 0)}
{(0, 2), (5, 7)}
{(2, 0), (7, 5)}

1. Why are you calling this trig ?

x^2 - 4x + 2 = x+2
x^2 - 5x = 0
x(x-5) = 0
x = 0 or x = 5

sub in those x's in either of the two equations to find the y, then choose your answer.
