1. To find the x-intercept, set y=0 and solve for x
To find the y-intercept, set x=0 and solve for y

the domain of a standard parabola that opens either up or down is
x "is an element of" R

the domain is either y ≥ "the y value of the vertex", if it opens up or
y ≤ "the y value of the vertex" if it opens downwards
