3. f(x) = 1/4 - x + 4
f(x) = 4.25 - x
or
y = -1 x + 4.25
that is a straight line of slope -1.
I suppose you could say it is symmetric about any line of slope +1, but I suspect you have a typo.

The formula is y=ax^2+bx+c I also gave the wrong problems, they are... 1. y=x^2-4x 2. y=-x+1 3. y=x+1 4. y=2x^2 well for number one you said it was y = -x^2 +1 when you graph it here are three points (-1,0), (0,1),(1,0) so you
