Here's the question you clicked on:

general form
Rewrite y = x^2 + 14x + 29 in general form
Maybe subtract y from both sides so the equation is set = 0.
i was thinking it was already in general form
If general form is the same as standard form, then usually you would have the variables on one side, and the constant term on the other. Since I am not really sure what "general form" is, I cannot give an exact answer.
So I would venture to say the general form here is x^2 + 14x - y = -29
this is confusing lol. thanks
Yeah you are right. I really never see parabolas written in any other way except the way you had it. So now that I think about it, I agree with what you wrote the first time.
I mean, if the parabola was written in another way, there would be a name for it. Like "vertex form" or "standard form". But "general form"? Probably exactly what you have.
what about this one though y = 3x^2 - 24x + 10
I would say that it is already in general form.
hmmm trick questions i guess..weird.
