What is the equation of the parabola that has a vertex at # (-4, 2) # and passes through point # (-7,-34) #?
To solve this you need to use the vertex form of the equation of a parabola which is
The first step is to define your variables
And we know one set of points on the graph, so
Next solve the formula for
To create a general formula for the parabola you would put in the values for
So the equation of a parabola that has a vertex at
