The y intercept
A point on the y-axis where the line crosses, noted with the letter b in slope intercept form.
Perfect Square Trinomial

If the discriminant in the quadratic formula produces a negative number, what does that tell us about the nature of the roots?
It never crosses the x axis. There are no x intercepts
If the roots of a quadratic equation are complex what does that tell us about the graph of the quadratic?
Tri-nomial
When two binomials using the same variable are multiplied the product is a _____________________________________.
Plus or Minus sign
When you take the square root of both sides of an equation to solve it, and one side produces the variable the first symbol on the other side is?
You have a double root and it is a single x intercept.
If the discriminant of the quadratic formula = zero, what type of roots do you have?
