# Week 9 Blog post Analyzing Quadratic Functions of the Form Y=a\$latex x^2\$+bx+c

Factored Form: y=a(x-x1)(x-x2)

y=-2$x^2$ -6x+20

y=-2($x^2$+3x-10)

y=-2(x1+5)(x2-2)

x1=-5  x2=2(x-intercepts)

so the axis of symmetry is (-5+2) devided by 2 equals to -1.5

# Week 8 blog post 4.1 Properties of a Quadratic Function

Ms Burton, I learned this chapter on Youtube by myself. And I took some notes.

The vertex of a parabola is its highest or lowest point.(_,_) The vertex may be a maximum or minimum point.

If the graph opens up, x should be positive, the vertex amy be the minimum point, the domain can be any  real numbers, and the range must be y>= (greater than the vertex)

If the graph opens down,x should be negative, the vertex amy be the maximum point, the domain still can be any  real numbers, and the range must be y<= (lease than the vertex)
