Set y = 0 and solve to find the x intercept.-b2aGraphs of Quadratic EquationsThe vertex is at x = 1, y = 16y-intercept is at (0, 15)Plot its reflection (2, 15)Draw, set y = 0 to get x-int:–x2 + 2x + 15 = 0x2 – 2x – 15 = 0(x + 3)(x – 5) = 0x = –3, x = 5Example C. Graph y = –x2 + 2x + 15 (1, 16)(0, 15) (2, 15)(-3, 0) (5, 0)
  54. 54. Finally, we make the observation that given y = ax2 + …,if a > 0, then the parabola opens upward.Graphs of Quadratic Equations
  55. 55. Finally, we make the observation that given y = ax2 + …,if a > 0, then the parabola opens upward.Graphs of Quadratic Equationsif a < 0, then the parabola opens downward.
