By inspection of the graph you would expect the value of

You should find that

Any probs, give me a shout!!

*x*and substitute them into the formula given until you get*f(x)*as close to zero as possible. As you are only asked to find the value of*a*to**one decimal place**, you wont get an answer of zero, but choose value which gives you an answer closest to zero.By inspection of the graph you would expect the value of

*a*to lie between 0.1 and 0.5 and should substitute these values through the equation.You should find that

**to one decimal place.***a = 0.2*Any probs, give me a shout!!
