Write the standard form of the quadratic function that has the indicated vertex and whose graph passes through the given point.
Vertex: (-2, 5)
Point: (0, 9)
Standard quadratic function with given vertex (h,k) is given by:
where a can be found by substituting the values of any given point on the curve.
Here, h=-2, k=5, so
Now substitute x=0, y=9 and solve for a.
