Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok. Well automatically, you can tell that it is a parabola (quadratic) right? Quadratics are more easily graphed when you have the equation in quadratic form: y=a(xh)^2 +k So you will want to convert the above equation to this form. They you can take the vertex and y intercept from the form

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i forgot the step after finding the vertex and the formula you use to do it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i used the formula ...x=(b)/2(a)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That formula works too :) That will give you the x value that is the axis of symmetry. In the case you are doing, the vertex will be ( [b/2a], f([b/2a]))

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OH! sorry! um what I wrote represents the coordinate pair of the vertex. b/2a is the x value. f(b/2a) is the y value that coresponds with the above x value

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0 for you can solve it you need make it equal zero  so 1/3 x^2 4x +6 =0 multiply both sides by 3 3x^2  12x +18 =0 3 x^2 12x +18 =0 D =144  4*1*18 =144 72 =72 x_1,2= (12+/ sqrt72)/2 =(12+/ sqrt(9*4*2))/2 =(12+/ 6sqrt2)/2 = =2(6+/3sqrt2)/2 =6+/3sqrt2 x_1,2=6+/3sqrt2
