PLEASE HELP PLEASE: Write each quadratic function in vertex form. Give the coordinates of the vertex and the equation of the axis of symmetry. Then describe the transformations from f(x)= x^2 to g. g(x)=-x^2+2

    now that you know the vertex of each you can write the vertex form of each of the equation

    the vertex form formula is a(x-h)+k=0, where vertex= (h,k)

    from ax^2 +bx +c=0 f(x)=-x^2+2= x^2 where b=0, c=0 g(x)=-x^2+2, where b=0,c=2

    wait why is f(x)=-x^2+2= x^2? shouldn't it be just f(x)=x^2?

    why is the f(x) different?

    the main form is f(x)=x^2 but if you change them to y=-x^2 now theres a negative sign then if you add 2 then you have to jump up 2 on y axis
