Date _______

To find the minimum or maximum of a function:

1. Press

2. Press 2 (minimum) or 3 (maximum). 3. Use the or keys to go to the left of the vertex. Hit ENTER.

4. Use the key to go just slightly right of the vertex. Hit ENTER. Hit ENTER again to guess.

PART 1: For each question, a) State whether the function has a minimum or maximum value. b) Use the graphing calculator to find the maximum or minimum value (round your answer to the nearest hundredth. Some questions will also have you prove your answer algebraically. 1) y 3x2 7x 2 2) y 5x2 8x

For #3-4, find the vertex using the calculator. Then, prove your answer algebraically. 3) y x2 2x 4) y 2 x 2 8 x 3

5) An object is fired straight up from the top of a 200-foot tower at a velocity of 80- feet per second. The height h(t) of the object t seconds after firing is given by h(t) 16t 2 80t 200 . a) Use your calculator to find the maximum height reached by the object and the time that the height is reached.

b) Interpret the meaning of the y-intercept in the context of this problem.

6) Rock music managers handle publicity and other business issues for the artists they manage. One group’s manager has found that based on past concerts, the predicted income for a performance is P( x) 50 x 2 4000 x 7500 , where x is the price per ticket in dollars. At what ticket price will the predicted income be the greatest? (You will need to make your viewing window bigger).
