The quadratic functions f(x) and g(x) are described as follows:
f(x) = −8x^2 + 7
x g(x)
0 0
1 2
2 6
3 2
4 0
Which of the following statements best compares the maximum value of the 2 functions?
It is the same for both functions.
f(x) has a greater maximum value than g(x).
g(x) has a greater maximum value than f(x).
The maximum values cannot be determined.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well, we know that x^2 is always positive (or 0) so 8x^2 is always negative, or 0. the maximum value of 8x^2 is 0, so the maximum value of 8x^2 + 7 is...?
