can someone please me with this
Part B
The second part of the new coaster is a parabola.
Ray needs help creating the second part of the coaster. Create a unique parabola in the pattern f(x) = ax2 + bx + c. Describe the direction of the parabola and determine the yintercept and zeros.
The safety inspector notes that Ray also needs to plan for a vertical ladder through the center of the coaster's parabolic shape for access to the coaster to perform safety repairs. Find the vertex and the equation for the axis of symmetry of the parabola, showing your work, so Ray can include it in his coaster plan.
Create a graph of the polynomial function you created in Question 4.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in general when a is positive the parabola opens up and when a is negative the parabola opens down. the yintercept the values of x when y = 0 the vertex is the maximum or minimum value of y when the value of x is the line of symmetry. vertex form for the equation of a parabola a(xh)^2 + k where h = b/2a the xvalue and k is the corresponding yvalue

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so how did u describe the direction of it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1here my a is 2 positive graph open up when y = 0 solve for x = 3.69 and 0.69 total distance = around 4 1/2 of that around 2 so line of symmetry and xvalue for vertex 3.69 + distance to line = 1.5 f(1.5) = minimum = 9.5 vertex (1.5, 9.5)
