 Question 401115: I am trying to do the following problems: 1. Let t(x) = { 1-3x for x <= -1 { 1+x^2 for x > -1 Determine t(−3), t(−1), t(0), and t(5). 2. Graph f(x) = { |x| for x < 2 { 1 for 2 <= x < 4 { 1 − x for x >= 4 3. Draw the graph of y = −2|x + 1| − 4. Do not do this by plotting points. Instead construct a sequence of five graphs and get from one graph to the next by applying an appropriate transformation. 4. Same as problem 3 for the function y = −4 sqrt x + 2 + 1.

 Question 401240: Beverly can drive 600 miles in the same time Susan can drive 500 miles. If Beverly can drive 10 mph faster than Susan, how fast does Beverly drive? i know this is the D=r*t formula, but the answer I got was 1/2. so i just think i have the set up the equation wrong.

 Question 402729: Hello, I am having a hard time with the following two problems. Could someone please help with them I would very much appreciate it! Thanks Consider the parabola with equation f(x)= -x^2-2x+15 (a) Does the parabola open up or down? (b) What is the equation for the axis of symmetry for the parabola? (c) What are the coordinates of the vertex of the parabola? (d) What is the y-intercept of the parabola? (e) Determine the x-intercepts if there are any. (f) Sketch a graph of the parabola. A parabola has an x-intercept at 2, its axis of symmetry is the line x = 4, and the y- coordinate of its vertex is 6. Determine the equation of the parabola. Hint: The equation looks like y = ax^2+bx+c. Use the given information to figure out what a, b, c must be. For example, when x = 2, the y value must be 0 since 2 is an x-intercept. That means 0 = 4a + 2b + c. The other two given facts provide similar information about a, b, c. Click here to see answer by Alan3354(30993)
