A) f(x) = x2 + 8x – 3

B) f(x) = x2 – 5x + 8

C) f(x) = 2x2 – 12x + 1

D) f(x) = 3x2 + 2x – 5

**Reiny**, Tuesday, March 20, 2012 at 9:15amI will do one, you do the others.

You will learn how to do these only by doing lots of them

c)

f(x) = 2x^2 - 12x + 1

= 2(x^2 - 6x + ..... ) + 1

= 2(x^2 - 6x**+ 9 - 9**) + 1

= 2( (x-3)^2 - 9) + 1

= 2(x-3)^2 - 18 + 1

= 2(x-3)^2 - 17

vertex is (3, -17)
