Work!

1. Finding the Vertex~

Used b and a terms in (-b/2a) for the x-term of vertex.

-14/-2 = 14/2 = 7

x= 7

Used x = 7 in equation to get y.

y= -(7)^2 + 14(7) - 24

y= -49 + 98 - 24

y= 25

Vertex: (7,25)

Equation: y= -x^2 + 14x - 24

2. Graphing the Parabola

Made a Table

Using the numbers around the vertex, the table went from 0-14 for x and 2- 12 for y.

Plotted the points and drew the connection.

Work!

Black Bird has a table!

1. Finding the Vertex

Found the two closest values.

Found the greatest y-value.

2. Finished the table

Repeated the opposite value of

vertex (axis of symmetry).

3. Graphed the Parabola

Plot the points on the table

Drew the connection line.

Work!

Work!

Equation: y= -x^2 + 16x - 13

1. Finding the Vertex

Used b and a terms for (-b/2a)

-16/-2

x= 8

Used f(8)=-x^2 + 16x - 13

y= -(8)^2 + 16(8) - 13

y= -64 + 128 - 13

y= 51

Vertex= (8, 51)

2. Graphing the Parabola

Create a Table

Used surrounding values of 8 and used it in the equation for the y-values.

Plot points in the table onto graph

Drew connection line.
