A quadratic equation can be written in vertex form or in standard form. Sometimes one form is more beneficial than the other. Identify which form would be more helpful if you needed to do each task listed below and explain why.
a factor the equation
b graph the parabola
cidentify the vertex min or max of the parabola
d solve the equation using the quadratic formula

(c) obviously the vertex form
(d) standard form, so you have the needed a,b,c coefficients.
