(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

1) find the vertex, 2) find the x intercepts in terms of a, h, and k, 3) explain how values of a, h, and k affect the graph

2. Relevant equations

y = A(x - h)^2 + k

3. The attempt at a solution

1) (H,K)

2) aaaahhh i don't know... i just forgot.

3) A determines how wide it is, with a bigger a making a skinnier parabola, a smaller A making a wider parabola, and a negative a making it go upside down. H moves the vertex along the x axis, and K moves it along the Y axis.

is the ones i answered right? also. i would really appreciate a hint as to how to find out 2.

thanks guys
