f(x) = -16x2 + 24x + 16

Part A: What are the x-intercepts of the graph of f(x)? Show your work. (2 points)

Part B: Is the vertex of the graph of f(x) going to be a maximum or minimum? What are the coordinates of the vertex? Justify your answers and show your work. (3 points)

Part C: What are the steps you would use to graph f(x)? Justify that you can use the answers obtained in Part A and Part B to draw the graph. (5 points)

1. -16x^2 + 24x + 16 = 0.
A. Divide by 8:
-2x^2 + 3x + 2 = 0, A*C = -2*2 = -4 = -1 * 4. Sum = -1 + 4 = 3 = B, -2x^2 + (-x+4x) + 2 = 0,
(-2x^2-x) + (4x+2) = 0,
-x(2x+1) + 2(2x+1) = 0,
(2x+1)(-x+2) = 0, 2x+1 = 0, X = -1/2. -x+2 = 0, X = 2.
X-intercepts: (-1/2,0), (2,0).

B. Since the coefficient of x^2 is negative, the parabola opens downward. Therefore, the vertex is a maximum.

Locate the vertex: h = Xv = -B/2A = -24/-32 = 3/4, Plug 3/4 into the given Eq to find k(Yv). K = -16(3/4)^2 + 16(3/4) + 16 = 19. V(h,k) = V(3/4,19).

C. Choose 3 points above and below the vertex for graphing. Include the points calculated in part A which shows where the graph crosses the x-axis.
