 # Three Formulas for a Quadratic Function

 The function g(x) shown in the graph is a translation of f(x) = 2x2.1. Find a formula for g (x) using the fact that it is a translation of f(x) = 2x2. Tip: Check with a grapher . 2. Simplify the formula for g(x) so that it has the form g(x) = ax2 + bx + c (standard form). Tip: Check with a grapher . 3. g(x) is a quadratic function that can be factored. Write down the formula in factored form . Tip: Check with a grapher 4. Use the graph to find the coordinates of the vertex of g(x). _____________________
Is there a connection between the coordinates of the vertex and the formula in Question 1?
Explain.

5. Use the graph to find where g(x) crosses the y-axis. _______________
Is there a connection between the y- intercept and the formula in Question 2? Explain.

6. Use the graph to find where g(x) crosses the x-axis. ________________
Is there a connection between the zeros (x-intercepts) and the formula in Question 3?
Explain.

7. Write down three different formulas for g(x).

vertex form : g(x) = _____________________________

standard form: g(x) = ___________________________

factored form : g(x) = ____________________________ Prev Next
