You can use that to at least get the parabola. After that, you have to complete the square

x^2+2x-35 = 0 x^2+2x = 35 x^2+2x+1 = 35+1 (x+1)^2 = 36

You really didn't need to do all of that however

since the vertex is halfway between the intercepts: add them up and divide by 2

symetry means : same on both sides; so if your in the middle your symetric

Actually, for that equation, I think they want you to write y = (x+1)^2 - 36
amistre64
  • amistre64
nah, x=-1 is it

the eq for the axis of sym

Oops, well in that case (5-7)/2
