1. Write an equation of the quadratic function(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); fwhose graph hasx-intercepts 3 and 7 andf(5) = 8.

2. I really don't know where to go from here

3. obviously, is thex-int. are 3 and 7 that means they are points (3,0) and (7,0). Also,f(5) = 8 becomes the point (5,8) which i have found to be the vertex. But, at this point, I don't know how to form a parabolic equation around those three points. Please help me!!!
