    \(y+7=3(x+8)^2\)

    The answer is y=3(x+8) -7 .. I just dont know how to get it

    Vertex form is: \[a(x-h)^{2}+k\]

    \[(h,k) \] is your vertex

    I know that but when I plug the problem into it I don't get the correct answer. What am I doing wrong. Can you please explain how to do it to me

    So -8 and -7 are vertex

    -8 = h -7= k

    a ( -7+8) Squared + 7 is that right

    Subtract -7 from both sides of my equation.

    Okay. So now do we have to plug in the other points that it passes through

    Then do I add 4 to the 7 ?

    No, because you want to solve for a. SO add the 7 to the 4

    What point in the feasible region minimizes the objective function? X > 0 y>0 y<4 Y < -x +5 Above are the constraints Objective Function: C= -9x+y The answer is (5,0) but I don't understand how to get it.

    I was thinking you had to plug some stuff in to get the final answer

    I used my graphing calc. I graphed y=-x+5

    the x intercept of that is (5,0)

    Cause have another example of a problem like that.. & that doesn't work Graph the system of constraints and find the value of x and y that minimize the objective function. 20. Constraints x ≥ 0 y ≥ 0 y ≤ 3 y < − 2x + 5 Ï Ì Ó Objective function: C = −8x + 5y

    (5,0) is the vertex because y=-x+5 is a line

    please ignore those random letters the answer is (5 / 2,0)

    If you graph, y=-2x+5, your x intercept is (5/2, 0)
