Hey thanks for all your help but you kinda confused me on a few:
1)Determine whether f(x)=-5x^2-10x+6 has a maximum or minimum value and find that value
and you said the function opens up, so there is a minimum.
it occurs when x=-1, and that minimum is f(-1), which is 11. So the answer is D right?
2)Identify the vertex,axis of symmetry,and direction of opening for y=1/2(x-8)^2+2
I picked A,here is your reasoning.vertex is ok, but how can the axis of symmetry be x=-8?? Would it not go through the vertex?? So it is x=9 (always the same as the x of the vertex)
3)Which quadratic function has its vertex at(-2,7)and opens down?
4)Write y=x^2+4x-1 in vertex form.
Well I'm not Reiny but I can help you out with #3
I found out by plugging it into the Y=
for creating graphs on my TI-83 Plus that it is A.
You should be able to do the same if you have this calculator and plug in each function. Then hit graph
For #1 contrary to what you found I found that when I plugged it into my Y= function on my calculator that the
-curve faced down
-at X=-1 was the vertex
- based on that I would have to say my conclusion is that it has a maximum at Y=11
For #2 it is D
but not x=9 like you said but I assume it was a typo
The axis of symetry is the same as the x of the vertex (your thinking is correct)
1. yes it is D
2. I clearly meant to type x=8
3. clearly A. B would have vertex (2,7), and both C and D open downwards
Hi im kinda confused still on Pulley systems and hoping someone can help me out. The two masses (m1 = 5.5kg and m2 = 3.0kg) in the Atwood's machine shown in The Figureare released from rest, with at a height of 0.89m above the
ok so i'm kinda sort of confused... I had this for a equation X^2 + 4X - 1 = 0 and then I was like zero??? zero... really zero... hmm... X^2 + 4X - 1 = dy ???????? That zero does represent when Y equals zero correct??? this allows
Hey I have an exam tomorrow and I cant understand this things.. Help me please .. 1: Derivative using the limit concept 2: Determine a Derivative using the theorems. 3:Evaluate velocity at the beginning and at the end 4: Using
So, I'm kinda confused, How would I solve 1c < 400, I'm trying to go back, and practice my Inequalities, and I kinda forgot how exactly to solve them.... And I don't want to give any of my actual problems so I just created this
Hey; I am doing a lab write up that has to do with NMR spectroscopy. Part of it asks to determine how many nonequivalent protons are in the compound 2-chloro-6-methylaniline, among other things. My problem is this is for kinetics
