Axis symmetry x=3 passing through (3,1) and (1,9)

Not sure how to solve

1. 0
2. 0
3. 2
1. (3,1) is the vertex of the parabola.

(1,9) and (5,9)

y = ax^2 + bx + c

Substitue in the point (3,1)
1 = a(9) +b(3) +c

Do the same for (1,9) and then again for (5,9)

You will have 3 equations and 3 variables. Solve for a, b, c.

There is also a formula to find the equation using the vertex and 1 point. you should be able to find it in your textbook or using a google search.

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
