 Click here to see ALL problems on Quadratic Equations Question 362065: Good Afternoon, Could someone please assist me that has the knowledge that I lack and that's the exact steps on how write a quadratic equation in standard form with the given soltuion set. I am required to show all of my work, so if you could show and explain each step, I would be most grateful. 11.3, # 16: Directions: Write a quadratic equation in standard form with the given solution set. x^2-5x-6=0 (should read x squared-5x-6=0) Also, the book shows the answer to be {-1,6}I appreciate your assistance. Answer by ewatrrr(10682)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!``` Hi, Quadratic functions in standard form f(x) = a(x - h)2 + k where (h,k) is the vertex point x^2-5x-6=0 completing the square by adding and subtracting (5/2)^2 = 25/4 f(x)= x^2-5x + 25/4 - 25/4-24/4 f(x)= (x - 5/2)^2 - 49/4 x^2-5x-6=0 solving by factoring (x-6)(x+1) = 0 (x-6)=0 x = 6 (x+1) = 0 x = -1 Solution Set is {-1,6} ```
