 Question 622726: With a y-intercept 10, x-intercept 2, and equation of axis of symmetry x-3 = 0, find the graph equation in standard form. So I've got two points (0, 10) (2, 0) and half of the vertex (3, k). I don't know how to get this. The equation is y = a(x-h)^2 + k Either of the two points could be labelled x and y. I'll use the x-intercept (2, 0). The vertex is used for h, k. So I've got 0 = a(2 - 3)^2 + k Two unsolved for variables. Not sure what to do. Click here to see answer by ewatrrr(10682)
