**drwls**, Thursday, August 11, 2011 at 7:42amI assume that ax© means a x^2.

a is a constant or "coefficient" that multiplies the x^2 term.

**Anonymous**, Thursday, August 11, 2011 at 7:46amIn the quadratic formula y=ax^2+b+x

Changing c moves it up and down.

Changing b changes the slope.

Changing a alters the curvature of the parabolic element.

The general rule is, that as the absolute value of "a",becomes greater than 1, the graph becomes steep or narrow.

Changing "c" only changes the vertical position of the graph, not it's shape.
