The Intersections of Graphs method of solving equations is an alternate method of solving equations (not a replacement method). This method sometimes leads to approximate solutions whereas traditional symbolic methods can usually produce exact solutions. The Intersections of Graphs method is particularly useful when symbolic solutions are not possible.

- Step 1: Enter the left side of the equation for Y1 and the right side of the equation for Y2 (Under Y=)
- Step 2: Graph the equations in a window where the Intersection is visible.
- Step 3: Compute the Intersection (2nd CALC 5)
- Step 4: The x coordinate of the intersection point is the solution to the equation

Solve: 2 – (3x + 5) = 8x + 17

Solve: 2 – (3x + 5) = 8x + 17

Step 1:

Step 2:

Step 3:

Step 3: continued …

Step 4:

The solution is approximately x = -1.818182 or x = -1.82 to the nearest hundredth

Try this one: Solve 2x2 – 5x = 12

x = -1.5 or x = 4

Try this one:

Solve: ex+2= 52x for x

First we find the intersection of the left and right side just as we do with equations. Note that the graphs intersect at the point (8.20, 7.59).

Since this is an inequality, we must now determine if the correct sign is > or it flips to <.

Note that the graphs intersect at the point (8.20, 7.59). So we center an x-value of 8.

When x < 8.20, Y1 < Y2, but when x > 8.20, Y1 > Y2.

Since our original equation was Y1 > Y2 , we know x > 8.20. Thus in interval notation the solution set is (8.20, ∞).

Note that the graphs intersect at the point (1.36, 2.72).

Note that the graphs intersect at the point (1.36, 2.72).

We find that x ≤ 1.36 when Y1 > Y2.

Thus in interval notation the solution set is ( ∞, 1.36].

Example: Suppose the Fahrenheit temperature x miles

above the ground level is given by T(x) = 88 – 32 x.

Determine the altitudes where the air temp is from 300 to 400.

- We must solve the inequality
30 < 88 – 32 x < 40

- Graph all three parts in the same window

- We must solve the inequality -- continued
30 < 88 – 32 x < 40

- Find the 2 intersection points

Note: Use the down arrow to switch to the 2nd two equations.

Symbolically,

Between 1.5 and 1.8125 miles above ground level, the air temperature is between 30 and 40 degrees Fahrenheit.

Graph the set of data:

Line Graph

Note that this data appears to be linear:

f(x) = 2x - 3

Using this regression equation, f(x) = 2x - 3, what y (or f(x)) is paired with x = 10?

That is, find f(10).

f(10) = 17

Using this regression equation, f(x) = 2x - 3, what x is paired with y = f(x) = 10?

That is, solve 10 = 2x - 3.

x = 6.5 is paired with y = 10

Find the equation of the line that passes through the points (2, -3) and (-5, -4).

We could use point-slope form and find the equation symbolically or …

We could use linear regression.

Find the vertex of y = 2x2 – 7x - 1

The vertex is approximately (1.75, -7.125)

The vertex is approximately (0.833, -1.912)

A home owner has 200 feet of fencing to make a rectangular garden in his yard that is protected from the rabbits and deer. He decides to use the long side of the house as one side of the fenced area so a larger area can be obtained as less fencing is needed. That way he can walk out the back door into the garden. What of the dimensions of garden that maximize the area for planting?

The house!

A(x) = x(200 – 2x)

A(x) = x(200 – 2x)

X = 50

200 – 2x = 200 – 2(50) = 100

The dimensions are 50 by 100 feet.
