I forgot what equation we used to finde other points
anonymous
  • anonymous
well you dont really need an equation if you have plotted it
anonymous
  • anonymous
what does your graph look like?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I mean to find another point, I think I'm confusing it with a parabola. is it supposed to look like a parabola?
anonymous
  • anonymous
or a straight line?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I'm thinking since it has a vertex it's supposed to look like a parabola

a vertex of a square is a corner of the square
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ohhh I did not know that I'm sorry now I'm thinking of vertices ughhh okay so then it's just a straight line

Yes!
anonymous
  • anonymous
Thats what mine currently resembles
UnkleRhaukus
  • UnkleRhaukus
can you draw a square with this point as a corner (vertex), and with sides all equal to three?
UnkleRhaukus
  • UnkleRhaukus
(there are lots of ways you could do this )
anonymous
  • anonymous
I'll try but I don't think mine will be accurate
UnkleRhaukus
  • UnkleRhaukus
let me see
UnkleRhaukus
  • UnkleRhaukus
are you going to choose the above point as: the top-left, top-right, bottom-left, or bottom right, corner of your square?

anonymous
  • anonymous
That's how I drew it
UnkleRhaukus
  • UnkleRhaukus
but that square has sides of length two, we want sides of length three!
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh! my bad
anonymous

|dw:1434176939212:dw|

I think i fixed it lol
UnkleRhaukus
  • UnkleRhaukus
Good! So, what are the coordinates of the other vertices of the square now?
UnkleRhaukus
  • UnkleRhaukus
|dw:1434177028303:dw|

  • anonymous
(-3,3)
anonymous
  • anonymous
is one of them
anonymous
  • anonymous
(0,-1)
anonymous
  • anonymous
(-1, -3)
UnkleRhaukus
  • UnkleRhaukus
(-3,3) is not |dw:1434177119461:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh never mind i meant -3, and 2

are these my possible answers?
anonymous
  • anonymous
those coordinates
UnkleRhaukus
  • UnkleRhaukus
yea, these are the three options for the square you chose
anonymous
  • anonymous
I think I did the wrong square DX
anonymous
  • anonymous
gosh darn it
anonymous
  • anonymous
I had to get coordinates (-4,0) (0,-1) (1,-1) (4,1) or (5,0)
anonymous
  • anonymous
but thank you you taught me how to do the problem :) I'm gonna try that graphing again
UnkleRhaukus
  • UnkleRhaukus
remember the coordinate pairs are (x,y), [right/left , then up/down]

Nice work!!!

Also, if it's not too much of a problem, I've got another graphing question I could use some help on ! If not, it's totally cool! Thank you !

Nm false alarm!
