Ok there are two give points and I need to find the equation:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Points: (-3,0), (-.5,0)

My work:

y=(x+3)(x+.5)

y=x^2+.5x+3x+15

Completed the square:

-15= x^2+3.5x

-15=x^2+3.5x+3.0625

-11.9375=(x+1.75)^2

y= (x+1.75)^2+11.9375

What did I do wrong??
