Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\text{Let } f(x) = k(xa)^2 + c\] (general quadratic with square completed) (3,1) is a minimum => a = .... and c = .... When x = 0, f(x) = 10, so k = ... We can now expand and find the solution in the form f(x) = px^2 + qx + r

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, if a quadratic is at a minimum, x = a in the bracket (as the bracket is >= 0 for all x) So the only value is the + c This occurs at the point x = 3, y = 1, so we can deduce that the "a" = 3, and the c = 1 => f(x) = k(x3)^2 + 1 When x = 0, f(x) = 10. So k* (3)^2 + 1 = 10 > 9k + 1 = 10 > k = 1 So f(x) = (x3)^2 + 1, which we could expand (if we want) to f(x) = ....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(x3)^2 + 1 = x^2  6x + 10, which is the answer
