Match each graph with the correct equation on the right.
This graph is a curve graph that goes from points(-2, 20) down to (0,0) and back up to (2,20) on the graph.
The equations are:
The problem here is, that none of the these equations would produce the given
points, however the procedure is:
You can eliminate all the equations that have a numerical value because of the
given point: 0,0
Cross out a, d, f, and g as possible answers
You can tell it is not a linear equation from the given points, Eliminate (b,
Also because the vertex is at 0, the 2nd term of the equation is 0 also
Eliminate (c, (e
That leaves h) y = 2x^2
y = 2(-2^2) = 8
Actually the equation that will produce the given points is y = 5x^2
y = 5(-2^2) = 20
y = 5(+2^2) = 20
Looks like this:
