Basic Forms of a Quadratic Function

There are two basic forms for quadratic functions. The first one (standard form) is f (x) = ax2 + bx + c
and the second one ( vertex form ) is f (x) = a(x - h) 2 + k . The graph of a quadratic function is a
parabola . If a is positive , the parabola opens upward and if a is negative, it opens downward.

Example: Consider the following quadratic function . Find the maximum or minimum function value ,
the axis of symmetry, and the range:

Finding the Vertex

Given the vertex form of a quadratic function, the vertex is the point (h, k ) . Given the standard form of a
quadratic function , the x coordinate of the vertex is given by

Example: Find the vertex .

• In exercises # 103 & 105, you are asked to use least - squares
regression to find a quadratic function that
models the data. This is done almost in exactly the same way that linear regression is done.
