Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The axis of symmetry is the vertical line that goes through the vertex of a quadratic equation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@jchick can you help with this too? since its in vertex form would it be (4,1)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I understand how to get it from a graph just not in vertex or standard equation form

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The standard form of a parabola's equation is generally expressed: y=ax2+bx+c

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The vertex form of a parabola's equation is generally expressed as: y = a(xh)^2+k

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If a is positive then the parabola opens upwards like a regular "U". If a is negative, then the graph opens downwards like an upside down "U".

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0uh huh, and the axis is normally x=b/2 a right ? for standard?>

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I get the vertex form now and what changes the direction a parabola open just not how to get the axis of symmetry in standard form.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1a(x  h)^2 + k is vertex form

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The first one is the standard form

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah. so what gets the axis from standard?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The standard form of a parabola's equation is generally expressed: y=ax2+bx+c The role of 'a' If a>0, the parabola opens upwards if a<0 it opens downwards.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait I thought that the standard form equation was ax^2+bx+C not the axis of symmetry .....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.05/2a? what that from??

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that's okay. so if I had 2x^216x+15 the axis of symmetry would be 16/2(2) so itd be 4?
