How do write standard form of equation of the parabola given that vertex is (5/2, - 3/4) and graph passes through point (-2 ,4)?
Express the parabola in vertex form and work from there to obtain
We might just want to jump into the problem and try finding the standard form
The vertex is given in the problem, so:
We have to find the value of the constant
Our equation in vertex form is therefore:
We can expand the right hand side to find the standard form:
