Homework Help: algebra

Posted by Lee on Monday, October 29, 2012 at 4:28pm.

What is the equation in standard form of a parabola that models the values in the table?
x -2 0 4
f(x) 1 5 -59
Please help.I have somewhat of an idea
a(-2)^2+b(-2)+c c=1
a(0)^2+b(0)+c= c=5
a(4)^2+b(4)+c c=-59

4a+2b+c=1
0a+0b+c=5
16a+4b+c=-59

4a-2b+5=0
16a+4b+5=-59

4a-2b+5-5=0-5
4a-2b=-5
16a+4b+5-5=-59-5
16a+4b=-64

5(4a-2b)=5*5
20a-10b=25

20a-10b=25
16a+4b=-64

20a-10b-(16a+4b)=25-(64)
4a+14b=89

not sure what to do now
