Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think you start out f(2)=4a+(2b)+3=0 f(0)=ax^2+bx+c=6 c=6 f(4)=16a+4b+3=78

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yes, sortof. You'll need to solve a system of two linear equations.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Start with the standard form template: f(x)=ax^2+bx+c Then put in your known values: f(2) = a(2)^2+b(2)+c = 0 f(0) = a(0)^2+b(0)+c = 6 f(4) = a(4)^2+b(4)+c = 78 From the second equation, you can see that c = 6, so you can substitute that back in the other two.
