THE GRAPH OF A QUADRATIC FUNCTION

The parabola opens up if a>0 and opens down if a<0

y = x2

The parabola is wider than the graph of y = x2 if |a| < 1 and narrower than the graph of y = x2 if |a| > 1.

vertex

y = -x2

Axis of symmetry

STANDARD FORM

Graph y = 2x2 -8x +6

Solution: The coefficients for this function

Since a>0, the parabola opens up.

The x-coordinate is: x = -b/2a

The y-coordinate is:

The vertex is

a = 2, b = -8, c = 6.

x = -(-8)/2(2)

x = 2

y = 2(2)2-8(2)+6

y = -2

(2,-2).

Y INTERCEPT:

y = a(x - h)2 + k

• The vertex is (h,k).
• The axis of symmetry is x = h.

AXIS OF SYMMETRY:

Y INTERCEPT:

y = a(x - p)(x - q)

• The x intercepts are p and q.
• The axis of symmetry is halfway between (p,0) and (q,0).
