1. #1 and #2 are the same type of problem
I will do #1, you do #2 the same way

let ax^2 + bx + c = y be the function ,
for point (0,6) ---- 0 + 0 + c = 6, so c = 6
for point (2,16) --- 4a + 2b + 6 = 16 , 2a + b = 5
for point (3,33) --- 9a + 3b + 6 = 33, 3a + b = 9
subtract those two: a = 4
sub into 2a + b = 5
8 + b = 5, b = 3
then y = 4x^2 + 3b + 6 , which is choice B

for #3, you should know the vertex-yintercept form of a parabola
if the vertex is (3,5), then the equation must be
y = a(x-3)^2 + 5

but (1,13) lies on it, so
13 = a(1-3)^2 + 5
8 = 4a
a = 2
so y = 2(x-3)^2 + 5

so you see that choice?
