2-128.

For each equation below, find the *x*- and *y*-intercepts and the locator point (*h*, *k*), then write the equations in graphing form. Homework Help ✎

*y*-intercept:*x*-intercept:Since there is only one

*x*-intercept, the vertex must be at the*x*-intercept.*y*-intercept: (0, 2)*x*-intercept: (−1, 0)

vertex: (−1, 0)Start by finding the

*x*- and*y*-intercepts.To find the

*x*-coordinate of the vertex,

average the*x*-intercepts.To find the

*y*-coordinate of the vertex, substitute the

*x*-coordinate of the vertex into the given equation and solve for*y*.Now write the equation in graphing form.
