  1. This is a quadratic function, a parabola
    It has complex zeros (1/3)(1 +/- i sqrt 2) so does not cross the x axis.
    What happens as x goes to +oo or - oo?
    as |x| gets big, x^2 is >> x or 1 so it acts like y = 3 x^2 for large plus or minus x
    So it is an upright parabola (holds water)
    Let's find the vertex
    3 x^2 - 2x = y-1
    x^2 - 2/3 x = y/3 - 1/3
    x^2 - 2/3 x + 1/9 = y/3 -2/9
    (x-1/3)^2 = (1/3)(y-2/3)
    vertex at (1/3, 2/3)
