Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2what is the intercept form ? ax^2+bx+c = standard form y=a(xh)^2+k vertex form

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2this is the intercept form of parabola \[\huge\rm y=a(xp)(xq)\] where p and q are the xintercepts y= yintercept

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2given xintercepts are 2 and 3 so substitute p and q for 2 and 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\huge\rm y=a(x(2))(x3)\] y intercept is (0 , 4) { yintercept is a point where graph of the equation intersect yaxis when x=0 ) so substitute y for 4 and 0 for x solve for a

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[4=a(x(2))(x3)\] when y =4 x would be 0 bec when line intersect at yaxis x=0 so replace x with 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes right so intercept for would be ? \[\huge\rm y=a(xp)(xq)\] replace a with 2/3 p =2 q=3
