A quadratic equation is shown below: x2 - 8x + 13 = 0 Which of the following is the first correct step to write the above equation in the form (x - p)2 = q, where p and q are integers? Subtract 5 from both sides of the equation Subtract 3 from both sides of the equation Add 5 to both sides of the equation Add 3 to both sides of the equation

    do you know how to complete the square? let's practice do you think x^2-2x+1 can be written as a square?

    okay so if you do that then we have x^2-8x+13+3=0+3 x^2-8x+16=3

    now the vertex is very important for consider the min or even the max for a parabola that is why i asked for the other graph i think a good way to approximate the vertex is just plot those points given

    now the y values for each of these points is the amount of min production cost from each graph

    aka lowest y value for each graph

    the question ask you to compare the y values basically it ask which one is greater

    right because 899.5>55 so company 2 has a bigger min production cost
