March Question of the Month for Algebra Two

At how many points does the graph of intersect the x-axis?  You must provide an algebraic answer.

Solution:

The discriminant for the three terms is -11, 0, and 13, respectfully.  Therefore, each of the factors have, respectfully, 0, 1, and 2 roots.  So in total, there will be 3 points where this graph will intersect the

x-axis.
