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 ✎
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.
