(1)
(a)
Find all solutions:

(x + 2)(x - 3) = 0
Solutions x = -2 and x = 3.

(b)
Find all solutions:
It doesn't factor, so we use the quadratic formula.
Solutions are

(c) Find all solutions:
For this equation to be true, either x=0 or cos(x)=0.
The values of x that make cos(x) equal to 0 are , where k is an integer.
Thus, this equation has infinitely many solutions:
x = 0, and , where k is an integer.

(d) Find all solutions:

Solutions x=0 and x=3

(2)
(a)

(b)
0

(3)
Sketch the graph of
To find the x intercept, set y=0 and solve for x. You get x=6.
To find the y intercept, set x=0 and solve for y. You get y=-3.
