Interpreting Quadratic Functions in Factored Form

Interpreting Quadratic Functions in Factored Form 1.4 - Solution

arrow_back Return to Interpreting Quadratic Functions in Factored Form

We want to find the intercepts and the axis of symmetry of the given function. Let's do it one at a time.

Identify the intercepts

Recall the factored form of a quadratic function. In this form, where the intercepts are and Let's consider the factored form of our function. We can see that and that Therefore, the intercepts are and

Find the Axis of Symmetry

The axis of symmetry is halfway between and Since we know that and the axis of symmetry of our parabola is halfway between and We found that the axis of symmetry is the vertical line
