Not sure how to solve

- college algebra -
**JJ**, Saturday, February 16, 2013 at 2:03pm(3,1) is the vertex of the parabola.

(1,9) and (5,9)

y = ax^2 + bx + c

Substitue in the point (3,1)

1 = a(9) +b(3) +c

Do the same for (1,9) and then again for (5,9)

You will have 3 equations and 3 variables. Solve for a, b, c.

There is also a formula to find the equation using the vertex and 1 point. you should be able to find it in your textbook or using a google search.
