Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(C) c < 0 as graph cuts yaxis below the xaxis a < 0 because graph is frowning curve

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1E) inverted U shape meaning a<0 intersecting y axis at negative means C is less than 0 c<0 and also there is shift along x axis in right direction means b<0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the line of symmetry x = b/2a, is a positive value, and we know a < 0 so b > 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@hashsam1 the line of symmetry is the line x = b/2a. according to the graph it is to the right of the yaxis (so the sign of b/2a is positive). we know that a < 0, so if b < 0 then the sign of b/2a is ()/2() is negative.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0a simple example with 2 positive roots x=1 and x=2 the polynomial would be (x1)(x2) = x^2 +3x 2 this suggests a<0 b>0 c<0

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so your xintercept is negative, that is it will cut x axis in negative (left) side got this ? what about yintercept ???

kryton1212

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it may be B or E. y=c/b is it E?

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, y intercept is also negative, so it will cut down. and yes its E clear as to how ?
