Algebra 1B Chapter 9 Solving Quadratic Equations By Graphing

2
Warm Up 1. Graph y = x 2 + 4x + 3. 2. Identify the vertex and zeros of the function above. vertex:(–2, –1); zeros:–3, –1

3
Every quadratic function has a related quadratic equation. The standard form of a quadratic equation is ax 2 + bx + c = 0, where a, b, and c are real numbers and a ≠ 0. y = ax 2 + bx + c 0 = ax 2 + bx + c When writing a quadratic function as its related quadratic equation, you replace y with 0.

4
One way to solve a quadratic equation in standard form is to graph the related function and find the x-values where y = 0. In other words, find the zeros of the related function. Recall that a quadratic function may have two, one, or no zeros.

The axis of symmetry is x = 0. The vertex is (0, –18). Two other points (2, –10) and (3, 0) Graph the points and reflect them across the axis of symmetry. (3, 0) ● x = 0 (2, –10) ● (0, –18) ● ● ●
