Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0first, covert it into either \(Ax^2 + bx + c = 0 \) or \(f(x) = y = a(xh)^2 +k \) where \(h, k \) is your vertex and \(a\neq 0\) the first option is easier, the second option requires you to know how to complete the square

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can solve the vertex in the first one by using \(\large (x=\frac{b}{2a},y = f(x)) \)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@nincompoop how would you put y=1/12x^2 in that first formula???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so if you have a standard form of \(y = 2x^2  4x + 3\) your vertex can be solved by identifying your coefficients a = 2 b = 4 c = 3 vertex \(\large \frac{b}{2a} = \frac{(2)}{2(4)} = \frac{1}{4}\) then plug \( \frac{1}{4} \) into all of the x in \(y = 2x^2+4x+3 \)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0analyze the standard form \(y = Ax^2 + Bx +c \) you have three terms first term \(Ax^2 \) second term \(Bx \) third term \(c \)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ask yourself if the given equation has second or third term? if they don't show up it means it is zero anything +0 will remain the same
