    if you have a the equation of a parabola in standard form: y= ax^2 + bx +c you match up the coefficients of your equation with a, b, and c then use those numbers for a, b, and c in the formula discriminant= b^2 -4ac jim_t already did most of the work for you.

    we are doing question 4. They want to know the discriminant (of your quadratic equation) I assume they mean the equation they give in question 1 To find the discriminant we first do step 1: first step: pattern match y= 0.05 x^2 + 1x + 1 y= a x^2 +b x + c what is a,b, and c?

    I see you copied Jim's answer To find the discriminant we first do step 1: first step: pattern match y= 0.05 x^2 + 1x + 1 y= a x^2 +b x + c what is a,b, and c?

    almost, b is just 1 (we only want the numbers. a= 0.05, b=1 , c=1 step 2: replace the letters a, b, and c in b^2 - 4ab with the numbers you just found (remember b^2 is short for b*b 4ab is short for 4*a*b * means multiply

    now what is 1^2 ? 1*1 = 1 4*0.05 is 0.2 0.2*1 is 0.2 so 1- .2 = 0.8 the discriminant is 0.8

    For 5, the quadratic formula is \[ x=\frac{−b±\sqrt{b^2−4ac}}{2a}\] notice that the stuff inside the square root is the "discriminant", which you already figured out is 0.8 you also know what a, b and c are. So replace the letters with numbers what do you get?

    a=0.05, b=1, c=1 \[x=\frac{−1±\sqrt{1^2- 4\times0.05\times1}}{2\times0.05}\]

    I just noticed that the equation you have from question 1 should be y= 0.05x^2 -x +1 notice that b is -1 (not +1) this changes your answers (gack!)

    if we use b= -1 we get \[x= \frac{1 ± \sqrt{0.8}}{0.1}= 10±\sqrt{80} = 10± 4\sqrt{5} \] you get two answers x= 10+4sqrt(5) and x= 10-4sqrt(5) these are where the graph crosses the x-axis

    It's your call. The question says find the equation, from the graph. Did you find the equation from the graph? If so, you got it wrong?

    so that means its this? y= 0.05 x^2 -1x + 1

    in Q2, the -10 become +10 so that means its this? y= 0.05 x^2 -1x + 1 Yes
