ACT PREP Q/ PLEASE HELP: The functions f(x) = –(x + 4)^2 + 2 and g(x) = (x − 2)^2 − 2 have been rewritten using the completingthesquare method. Is the vertex for each function a minimum or a maximum? Explain your reasoning for each function.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Let us first define a maximum or a minimum function. Maxima or minima is the relative extremas and they are determined by a function. Relative maximum have the highest point on a given function, a relative minimum has the lowest point or points on a given interval in a function.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Like @zale101 said you need to look at the direction the parabolas open.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I need step by step I just want to learn because I need a study guide, i don't need to know how to do it now but could you just write it step by step because i am just studying for the ACT and i have a bunch more questions to go:D

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm not sure how that helps you. For one, there really is no step by step for this problem, and that will be the case for nearly every problem on the ACT. These problems are designed to be solved almost by inspection. You can either graph the equations or recognize that the sign of a tells you whether it opens up or down. y =a (x  h)^2 +k Positive a opens up, negative a opens down. (h, k) is the vertex
