Interpreting Quadratic Functions in Standard Form

Interpreting Quadratic Functions in Standard Form 1.13 - Solution

arrow_back Return to Interpreting Quadratic Functions in Standard Form

Quadratic functions can be written in standard form. We know that determines the width and if the graph is upward or downward, and gives the -intercept. Let's begin with the graphs of and , which have a positive value for the coefficient .

Positive

The functions and have positive coefficients in front of . We see directly that we can discard since the two graphs have vertical intercepts for and not for . Further, is somewhat wider than , which in this case means that the value of is smaller. Since is less than , we can determine how the expressions fits the graphs.

Negative

The functions and has negative coefficients in front of . We are to pair and with two of these: We can discard since the -intercept is clearly below Another thing, observe that is much wider than , which means that it should have a less negative -value than . Then you can see that must be associated with and with .

Summary

Thus, we have paired the graphs and functions in the following manner.
