Do you have a TI-83?
look at the graph and then ill explain how you can draw the parabola.
Ok that equation isn't the same as mine
I know, but i just wanted you to see sort of what it would look like...
Oh ok I know how to solve it, but when I graph it it doesn't curve
What do you mean?
Did you do the three point thing?
You should do that...Find the Lowest point.
You can either make a table or factor it to get started.
Continue the table!
the thing is no matter how much I ad the graph never curves
Welcome to openstudy :) Do you need any more help?
Hmm...Let me graph it on my calc and see whats up!
You can get a rough idea of the graph from 2 things: 1) The coefficient of x² If it is positive, the graph will be concave up. (shaped like a 'U'). 2) Solve for x. The roots of the equation are -1 and -5 These are the two points where the parabola crosses the x axis. With this small amount of information, we can make a rough graph of the equation.
