Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you mean that is how i do the quadratic part??

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I 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?

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1almost, 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

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so could you assist me in #5 as well??

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1For 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1a=0.05, b=1, c=1 \[x=\frac{−1±\sqrt{1^2 4\times0.05\times1}}{2\times0.05}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@phi ?? like that??

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I 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!)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yea i know it is a typo the graph is wrong

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if 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= 104sqrt(5) these are where the graph crosses the xaxis

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It'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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1o wow no i used the graph that was provided on the graph ;( that means i have to go back and do this all again :/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Q1 general equation is y=0.05 x^2 x +1 vertex form is 0.05(x10)^2  4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so that means its this? y= 0.05 x^2 1x + 1

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in Q2, the 10 become +10 so that means its this? y= 0.05 x^2 1x + 1 Yes

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in Q2, the domain are all valid x's in this case, inf to +infinity

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in Q2, the range is all y values. from the graph, you see y is always bigger than 4

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in Q3, your xintercepts should be positive

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in Q4, b is 1 not +1, but it won't change the discriminant calculation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i do need your help again though i mean how are you supposed to find the domain and range? @phi
