    It has to be put in general form and its equation is Y=a(x-h)^2+k

    Do you know the numbers to fill the variables?

    ive gotten so far: y=0.05x^2-x+1 y-1=.05x^2-x y-1+.25=.05x^2-x+.25 y-.75=.05x^2-x+.25

    \(\large y=0.05x^{2}-x+1 \) \(\large y=0.05x^{2-x}+1 \) \(\large y=0.05x^{2-x+1} \) which one is your question?

    y = 0.05x(x-20) + 0.01 , u want in this form?

    i dont think so, the eqaution says y=a(x-h)^2+k

    Is that a quadratic equation? I believe.

    im not sure, it might be called that or the general form eqaution

    general form is: y = ax^2 + bx + c

    i keep getting x=.05(x-10)-4 i think imright but im not sure

    y = 0.05x^2 - x + 1 , is in general form, unless theres some nitpicking rule about integer coeffs as opposed to ratioanl coeffs

    my paper says its in standard form

    standard form appears to be:\[y=a\left(x+\frac{b}{2a}\right)^2-\left(\frac{b^2-4ac}{4a}\right)\]

    I believe that you should find the sum that equals to 1 and the product that's equal to 0.05. However, both the numbers used will have to be same used in the 0.05 and 1. So it can be like (x+\-___)(x+\-_____)
