By the points you've given the parabola would be opening down so your quadratic would definitely be negative.

It actually opens up so its positive, oops I'll check my graphing calculator

So definitely D

Using $$ (-2,18), (0,2), (4,42) $$ We can solve $$ y=ax^2+bx+c $$ for a, b and c. Using (-2,18), x=-2 and y=18: $$ 18=a-2^2+b(-2)+c=4a-2b+c $$ Using (0,2), x=0 and y=2: $$ 2=a0^2+b(0) + c=c $$ So now we know, c=2. Finally, for (4,42), x=4 and y=42: $$ 42=a4^2+b(4)+c=16a+4b+c $$ Putting this all together: $$ 18=4a-2b+2\\ 42=16a+4b+2 $$ Adding 2 times the 1st equation to the second we get: $$ 2(18)=2(4a-2b+2)\\ +\\ 42=16a+4b+2\\ =\\ 36+42=8a+16a-4b+4b+4+2\\ 78=24a+6\\ 24a=78-6=72\\ a=72/24=3 $$ So, $$ 18=4(3)-2b+2\\ 2b=12-18+2=-4\\ b=-2 $$ We have found that a=3,b=-2 and c=2: $$ y=3x^2-2x+2 $$ |dw:1444452119003:dw| Make sense?
