This question has been killing me for days, :(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Give a family of quadratic functions of the form y=ax^2+bx+c, that passes through the following points:

(1,1) and (2,0)

I see how we can find the family, but how do we find the specific functions that pass through both those points? I tried making two separate equations (1 for each point, like(1,1) I would sub in for x and y) but that didn't give me anything useful. Even if I use elimination for the 2 equations, I don't know where it will get me....what should i do?
