## anonymous 4 years ago Find the y-coordinate of the vertex for the following function: g(x) = x2 - 3x + 2 y= its asking for a simplified fraction?

1. Mertsj

you might want to put it into vertex form by completing the square. $x^2 -3x +(\frac{3}{2})^{2 }+2-(\frac{3}{2})^{2}=$ $(x-\frac{3}{2})^{2}+(-\frac{1}{4})$

2. Mertsj

so we see that the vertex is( 3/2,-14)

3. anonymous

so the fraction would be 3/2?

4. amistre64

when x=3/2; what does y=?

5. amistre64

-1/4 ; he dropped the bar

oh, lol thank you!
