Why would you not accept it, the x ordinate is correct and so is the y ordinate. I could see if they had (-1, 9)...no credit...furthermore, they clearly understand by their response that the roots of the equation exist when the parabola crosses the x-axis at these two points, thus y=0.

> My department is engaged in a battle about the graph of the parabola. While we recognize that the roots of the equation are x=-1 and x=3, some department members want to accept ?roots = (-1,0) and (3,0)?. They insist that it will be accepted elsewhere. Could some of you weigh in on this please.
