Question #25331

The vertex of the parabola below is at the point -2,-1 and the point -1,1 is on the parabola. write the equation

Expert's answer

let y=a*(x-k)^2+b

we know that ( -2, -1 ) is the vertex and (-1,1) lies on parabola therefore these points should turn equation into right equality. So y=a*(x+2)^2-1 and from (-1,1) we get

1=a*(-1+2)^2 -1

a=2

so the equation is the following y=2(x-2)^2-1

we know that ( -2, -1 ) is the vertex and (-1,1) lies on parabola therefore these points should turn equation into right equality. So y=a*(x+2)^2-1 and from (-1,1) we get

1=a*(-1+2)^2 -1

a=2

so the equation is the following y=2(x-2)^2-1
