    Use the graph (y=2x^2) to estimate the value of √ 5
    Show clearly how you obtained your answer.

    How would you do this??

    Use the graph (y=2x^2) to estimate the value of √ 5
    Show clearly how you obtained your answer.

    How would you do this??
    If x= root 5, y would = 2*5=10. So find where y=10 on the graph and find the corresponding value of x. This should be approximately equal to root 5. You can always check your answer with a calculator.

    Hope this helps.

    Can you please post a picture of the graph that you are given in this question? The method to use could depend on the axes scales.

    EDIT: Actually I'm guessing the y-axis must go up to 10.

    Just look where y=10 and read off the approximate x coordinate.

    Well in that case, no comment was required.
    Good to know, but, ironically, this isn't rocket science.

    Never mind. Have a nice day.
