The kinds of equations that we have in mind are equations in x and y, such as √ y = 4x−1, 2x 2 − y = 0, y = 3x 2 + 1, y = x − 1 . The graph of an equation in the two variables x and y consists of all points (x, y) in the plane whose coordinates are solutions of the equation. EXAMPLE 2 Graph of an Equation Obtain the graph of the equation y − x 2 = 0 . Solution We can solve the equation for y to obtain y = x 2. Solutions can then be obtained by choosing values for x and then computing y by squaring the value of x, as shown in the following table: x −3 −2 −1 0 1 2 3 y = x2 9 4 1 0 1 4 9 Plotting these points (x, y) gives the following picture (left side of Figure 5), suggesting the graph on the right in Figure 5.

X − 1)(x + 2) + (x − 1)(x + 4) = 0 (x 2 − 1)[(x + 2) + (x + 4)] = 0 Factor the left-hand side. (x 2 − 1)(2x + 6) = 0 Either P = 0 or Q = 0. Either x 2 − 1 = 0 or 2x + 6 = 0 x = −3, −1 , or 1. Solve the individual equations. 6 Solving Miscellaneous Equations 31 EXAMPLE 1 Solving by Factoring Solve 12x(x 2 − 4) 5 (x 2 + 2) 6 + 12x(x 2 − 4) 6 (x 2 + 2) 5 = 0 . Solution Again, we start by factoring the left-hand side: 12x(x 2 − 4) 5 (x 2 + 2) 6 + 12x(x 2 − 4) 6 (x 2 + 2) 5 = 12x(x 2 − 4) 5 (x 2 + 2) 5 [(x 2 + 2) + (x 2 − 4)] = 12x(x 2 − 4) 5 (x 2 + 2) 5 (2x 2 − 2) = 24x(x 2 − 4) 5 (x 2 + 2) 5 (x 2 − 1) .
