f(x) = x^2 + 10x + 24
=(x^2 + 10x)+ 24
=(x^2 + 10x + 25 - 25) + 24
f(x) =(x+5)^2 - 1

Vertex: (-5, -1)

How do you sketch this? I know that in the graph one of the coord is (-5, -1) but how do I find the others in order to make a parabola? :|

• math -

Factorize to get the zeroes:
f(x)=x²+10x+24=(x+6)(x+4)
Therefore the zeroes at at x=-6, x=-4.

The y-intercept is y=24 (= constant term)
The coefficient of x² is positive, so the curve is concave upwards.

The vertex is the minimum of the parabola, and x=-5 passing through the vertex is the axis of symmetry.

That should give enough information to sketch the graph?

Thanks Reiny, but I'm still lost. I understand how you multipled by 10X on the right to get 17x, but you went too fast on the left, and I have no idea how you got 10x^2-20 from the starting left side. Can you show each step?
