Sullivan, III & Struve, Elementary and Intermediate Algebra10.5 - 3 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. The Vertex of a Parabola Any quadratic function f(x) = ax 2 + bx + c, a 0, will have vertex The x-intercepts, if there are any, are found by solving the quadratic equation f(x) = ax 2 + bx + c = 0.

Sullivan, III & Struve, Elementary and Intermediate Algebra10.5 - 4 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. The x-Intercepts of a Parabola The x-Intercepts of the Graph of a Quadratic Function 1.If the discriminant b 2 – 4ac > 0, the graph of f(x) = ax 2 + bx + c has two different x-intercepts. The graph will cross the x-axis at the solutions to the equation ax 2 + bx + c = 0. 2.If the discriminant b 2 – 4ac = 0, the graph of f(x) = ax 2 + bx + c has one x-intercept. The graph will touch the x-axis at the solution to the equation ax 2 + bx + c = 0. 3.If the discriminant b 2 – 4ac < 0, the graph of f(x) = ax 2 + bx + c has no x-intercepts. The graph will not cross or touch the x-axis.

Graphing Using Properties Graphing a Quadratic Function Using Its Properties Step 1: Determine whether the parabola opens up or down. Step 2: Determine the vertex and axis of symmetry. Step 3: Determine the y-intercept, f(0). Step 4: Determine the discriminant, b 2 – 4ac. If b 2 – 4ac > 0, then the parabola has two x-intercepts, which are found by solving f(x) = 0. If b 2 – 4ac = 0, the vertex is the x-intercept. If b 2 – 4ac < 0, there are no x-intercepts. Step 5: Plot the points. Use the axis of symmetry to find an additional point. Draw the graph of the quadratic function.

Maximum and Minimum Values The graph of a quadratic function has a vertex at Maximum Minimum Opens up a > 0 Opens down a < 0 The vertex will be the highest point on the graph if a < 0 and will be the maximum value of f. The vertex will be the lowest point on the graph if a > 0 and will be the minimum value of f.

Sullivan, III & Struve, Elementary and Intermediate Algebra10.5 - 9 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Maximum and Minimum Values Example: Determine whether the quadratic function f(x) = –3x 2 + 12x – 1 has a maximum or minimum value. Find the value. Because a < 0, the graph will open down and will have a maximum. f(x) = –3x 2 + 12x – 1 abc The maximum of f is 11 and occurs at x = 2.

Applications Involving Maximization Example: The revenue received by a ski resort selling x daily ski lift passes is given by the function R(x) = – 0.02x 2 + 24x. How many passes must be sold to maximize the daily revenue? Step 1: Identify We are trying to determine the number of passes that must be sold to maximize the daily revenue. Continued. Step 2: Name We are told that x represents the number of daily lift passes. Step 3: Translate We need to find the maximum of R(x) = – 0.02x 2 + 24x. ab
