Suppose a parabola has vertex (5, –3) and also passes through the point (6, 1). Write the equation of the parabola in vertex form. A. y = (x – 5)2 – 3 B. y = 4(x – 5)2 – 3 C. y = 4(x + 5)2 – 3 D. y = 4(x – 5)2 + 3

    Eliminate the choices that DON'T have the vertex = (5,-3).

    just kidding i thought it was -5. so it has to be c since thats the only one with +5

    You're perfectly right. Now check if (6,1) is also a point in both the choices.

    The standard form is this:\[\rm y = a(x - h)^2 + k\](h,k) is the vertex.

    You plug in 6 for x and 1 for y, then check if both sides are equal.
