For example:

y=-3x2+18x+25

In this lesson you will learn to rewrite a quadratic function to reveal the maximum value by completing the square.

Suppose we have y=-3x2+18x+25

• is negative

Add a number inside the bracket and distribute before you subtract to preserve equality!

• Preserving the equality of an equation

• y=-3x2+18x+25

• A square number is always positive unless it’s zero.

=-5(0)2+43

=0+43

ADDING subtract to preserve equality!a negative number to any number makes that number smaller so the function will have a maximum value when the square term is zero.

In this lesson you subtract to preserve equality!have learned to rewrite a quadratic function to reveal the maximum value by completing the square.

Rewrite y=-3x subtract to preserve equality!2+24x-36 by completing the square.

What is the maximum value of this quadratic function?

A subtract to preserve equality!pencil is thrown into the air. Its height H in meters after t seconds is H =-2(t - 3)2 +20.

a)Sketch a picture of how the graph might look like.

b) What was the pencil’s maximum height? At what time did this occur?

c) From what height was the pencil thrown?

A rancher needs to enclose two adjacent rectangular corrals-one for cattle and one for sheep. If the river forms one side of the corrals, and 390 yd. of fencing is available, Find the largest total area that can be enclosed.

a)width = x

length=?

Recall: corrals-one for cattle and one for sheep. If the river forms one side of the corrals, and 390 yd. of fencing is available,

Area=l w

c)Write the equation

for the area of the corral

A(x)=

d)What is the largest total area that can be enclosed?

Rewrite each function to find its maximum value by completing the square.

• y=-2x2-8x+9

• y=-4x2+12x+25
