Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The equation of a parabola in a vertex form \[y = a(x  h)^2 + k\] vertex (h,k)=(3,1) x intercept x,y=(4,0) tat means the only variable left is a, solve for it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry about the confusion earlier, i should have used y=a(xh)^2+k since you already mentioned it to me.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So you are given 2 points, and one of them is the vertex, at the vertex f'(x) = 0 f ' (3)=0 (1) f(3) =1 (2) f(4)=0 (3) So you have these 3 pieces of information

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1A parabola is a quadratic of the form y=ax^2+bx+c you have 3 unknowns and you can form 3 linearly independent equations y'(3)=0 y(3)=1 y(4)=0 solve for a,b,c
