We are given the
and we need to write it in .
In the equation above,
represent the solutions to the equation
Hence, we begin by finding the solutions using the .
In our case,
Let's substitute these values into the formula above.
The of the function are
Let's separate them using the positive and negative signs.
The intercepts the
In other words,
We are ready to rewrite the given function in factored form.
Next, we find the by finding the midpoint between the
From the above, we also know that the
-coordinate of the is
-coordinate is equal to
Let's find the
We now know that the vertex is at
Finally, we can find the
-intercept by setting
The graph intercepts the
With all this information, we can .
