f(x)=x^2+x^2-8

a. what is the vertex (h,k) of f?

(h,k)=? simplify your answer and type the answer in an ordered pair

b. what is the axis of symmetry?

**Riana**, Tuesday, January 1, 2013 at 6:37pma. (0,-8) is the vertex

- math -
**Riana**, Tuesday, January 1, 2013 at 6:42pmb. axis of symmetry is zero.

**Reiny**, Tuesday, January 1, 2013 at 7:24pmI have a feeling there is a typo.

Why would anybody have two like terms in the equation ?

should it be

f(x) = x^2 + 2x - 8 ????

**Heather**, Tuesday, January 1, 2013 at 7:38pmYes, Reiny you caught the typo

It should read f(x)=x^2+2x-8, thank you for catching that. So, now my answers will change that Riana gave. Right?

**Reiny**, Tuesday, January 1, 2013 at 7:43pmyes,

complete the square ....

f(x) = x^2 + 2x**+1 - 1**-8

= (x+1)^2 - 9

vertex is (-1,-9)

axis of symmetry: x = -1 or x+1 = 0

- math -
**Riana**, Tuesday, January 1, 2013 at 7:46pmthen your vertex is (-2,8)

and axis will be -1

- math -
**Riana**, Tuesday, January 1, 2013 at 7:47pmthe vertex can't be (-1,-9) its incorrect.

**Reiny**, Tuesday, January 1, 2013 at 7:48pmNO, check my reply

**Reiny**, Tuesday, January 1, 2013 at 7:52pmYes it is !
