The graph of which quadratic equation is shown below? y = x^2 + 2x − 8 y = x^2 − 2x − 8 y = −x^2 − 2x + 8 y = −x^2 − 4x − 8

    Does the graph of x^2 open up or down? How about -x^2? :)

    as its -x^2 it will be open downwards like C and D

    f(x) + C will affect the position on the y axis. Take this fact into consideration.

    yup the intercept on y-axis is when x = 0

    |dw:1368631726428:dw| can you find the x -intercepts?

    ok, set everything I drew above to zero, that is like saying: When is Y zero? When Y is zero it touches the x-axis

    it is zero when x = 2 and when x = -4

    So the answer is...?

    So then the answer is y = −x^2 − 2x + 8 I factored out the negative sign above.

    look at your graph, it's consistent with this
