Math Tutoring on Solving Equations Graphically
To solve equations graphically we will talk about the Intersection Method and the Zero Method.
Remember that a solution to an equation is a value or values that make the equation true. We often solve equations algebraically. Intersection Method for Solving Equations is as follows:
1. If a linear equation is in the form of f(x) = g(x), first we will graph y1 = f(x), then we will graph y2 = g(x).
2. So essentially we will graph the right side and the left side of the equation separately.
3. Then we will find the x-coordinate of the point of intersection.
4. x-coordinate of the point of intersection will be the solution.
We have a graph of f(x), a graph of g(x), the point of intersection and the x-coordinate of this point represents the solution.
Zero Method for Solving Equations is as follows:
2. Graph y = f(x).
3. Look for x-intercept also called the zero. The x-intercept is the solution to the equation.
