 Quadratic_Equations/313133: how do you get the x intercepts by evaluating the function in order to get other points to graph the function>?????? this is what I have so far: f(x) =2x^2 +2 =2(x^2 +1) +2 f(x) = 2(x^2+1+.5-.5)+2 =2(x+2+1)+3(.5)+2 =2(x+3)^2 + 3.5 am i on the right track and if so what next in order to finish ??1 solutions Answer 223937 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2010-06-10 16:43:34 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!No, not on the right track. To get x-intercepts, set f(x)=y=0 and solve for x. Well there are no x such that when you square them and add 2 will give you zero. There are no x-intercepts for this parabola. It never crosses the x-axis. . . . To get the y-intercept, set x=0 and solve for y. . . . You can find the axis of symmetry and vertex by completing the square. Actually, it's already in vertex form, So the vertex is at (0,2) and it opens upwards. . . . To get other points, just pick an x and calculate y. , , . . .

 Quadratic_Equations/313163: I'm stumped. Given an array of known X and Y values, and a list of *new* X values, how can I solve for what the new Y value will be ? A bit more detail: In Excel, I plotted these known X and Y values by means of a XY Scatter Chart, then asked it to create me a Trend Line, showing me the formula. The formula, for this data, is: y = 14.132x² - 63.03x + 79.647. I need to know how to actually *arrive* at that formula by a more manual means. Thanks! :)1 solutions Answer 223913 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2010-06-10 15:53:39 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Check out the link below for the particulars. You can do this all within an EXCEL spreadsheet. You're trying to fit to the given sets of data (,). . . . You need to create a matrix of values. [X]= where . . . Then create another matrix of values, [Y]= where Then you have the coefficients a0,a1, and a2. [a]= . . . The matrix equation you need to solve is, [X][a]=[Y] [a]=[X]inv[Y] So find the inverse of [X] and matrix multiply by [Y]. That will provide you the coefficients of the least square fit quadratic, [a]. . . . http://mathworld.wolfram.com/LeastSquaresFittingPolynomial.html
 Inequalities/313152: 3(x-2)+7=5+4x i know the answer is 4 i just dont know how to do the step by step work 1 solutions Answer 223897 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2010-06-10 15:03:19 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Distribute the . Combine like terms on the left hand side. To get rid of the on the left side, subtract from both sides. To get rid of the from the right side, subtract from both sides. Multiply both sides by (-1) Verify the solution using the original equation. True statement, good solution.

 Quadratic_Equations/313085: Find the vertex of the parabola represented by this equation: 1 solutions Answer 223870 by Fombitz(13828)   on 2010-06-10 11:26:17 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!You did get the value correct for . But that point is not the vertex. To get to vertex form, complete the square. THe equation is now in vertex form, where (h,k) is the vertex. For your equation, the vertex is (4,-4). Here's a graph to verify.
