What is the end behavior of the graph of f(x) = -0.25x2 - 2x + 1?
A) As x increases, f(x) increases. As x decreases, f(x) decreases.
B) As x increases, f(x) decreases. As x decreases, f(x) decreases.
C) As x increases, f(x) increases. As x decreases, f(x) increases.
D) As x increases, f(x) decreases. As x decreases, f(x) increases.

Please help! I have no idea!

  1. Think of the graph and the way it opens : ) That will help you SEE what happens to the function as x increases and decreases.
