Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in this case \[a=3,b=18\] so \[\frac{b}{2a}=\frac{18}{2\times3}=3\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that is the first coordinate and the second coordinate is what you get when you replace x by 3. you get \[3\times 3^218\times 3+3=2754+3=27+3=24\] check my arithmetic because it is late
