Put the following quadratic in standard form, identify the vertex, y-intercept, and graph including two symmetrical points to the left and right of the vertex.Answer by janinecb(25)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Different books actually have slightly different standard forms for the parabola. One version is: Where (h, k) is the vertex. To find the y-intercept, just plug in zero for the x and solve for y. To find two symmetrical points, find two numbers the same distance to the left and right of the x value of the vertex. Then plug them in for x and solve for y. Example: The vertex is (2, 1). Plug in zero for x to find the y-intercept. y = 4 + 1 y = 5 So the y-intercept in point form is (0, 5). Pick two x values that are the same distance from the x value of the vertex, such as 1 and 3. Then plug them into the equation to find the y values to go with them on the graph. y = 1 + 1 y = 2 So one point is (1, 2). y = 1 + 1 y = 2 So a symmetrical point is (3, 2).
