The answer is :
We start with 550 pieces of candy.
We know that for each kid that comes, the total number of candy will be reduced in 5 units.
Then if there are x children that came to take candy, the total number of candy left will be:
f(x) = 550 - 5*x
That is the function that represents this situation.
Now we want to find the zero of this function, this will be the value of x such that f(x) = 0.
So we only need to solve the equation:
f(x) = 0 = 550 - 5*x
5*x = 550
x = 550/5 = 110
The x-intercept will be (110, 0)
In this particular case, the information on the zero represents the number number of kids that must come and take candy in order to have no more pieces left in the bowl.
they are both the same!
Hope this helps, have a great day, and stay safe!!
