Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0vertex form > y = a(xh)^2 + k , (h,k) is the vertex point the standard form > x^2 + bx +c = 0 x2 − 5x + 6=0 (x3)(x2) = 0 the graph intersect xaxis at x=3 and x=2 the value of h = 3+2/2 = 5/2 therefore k = (5/2)^2 5(5/2) + 6 = 25/4  25/2 + 6 = 1/4 so now that we know the value of h and k y = a(x  5/2)^2  1/4 to find the value of a, just plug the value of point that's passed by the graph. i'll plug x=1, from the standard form, i'll get y=15+6 = 2 then i plug that point (1,2) 2=a(15/2)^2  1/4 2=a(3/2)^2 1/4 2=a(9/4)1/4 a(9/4) = 9/4 > a=1 finally we have the complete vertex form y=1(x5/2)^2  1/4 > y=(x  5/2)^2  1/4
