9-134. This problem is a checkpoint for the quadratic web. It will be referred to as Checkpoint 9.

Determine the required missing part of the quadratic web.

1. Make an $x$ $y$ table and then draw a graph of $y = x^2 - 2x − 3$.

2. Write a possible equation for the given graph.

3. Without making an $x$ $y$ table, what are the $x$-intercepts of $y = x^2 + 8x + 7$? Use them to calculate the coordinates of the vertex and then sketch a graph.

4. The height (in feet) of a rocket after $x$ seconds is given by the equation $y = 128x - 16x^2$. What is the maximum height reached by the rocket and how long does it take to reach that height?

Check your answers by referring to the Checkpoint 9 materials located at the back of your book.
