• Quadratic formula: x =

2a

• The example used in this lecture shows you a problem where a variable is

treated as a number. In this case, y is part of the answer when you solve

for x.

• The quadratic formula gives us an easy way to solve equations that might

appear unsolvable and that certainly involve messy numbers. You can use

it for any quadratic equation.

+ c = 0.

In this problem,

a=3

b = y (It’s OK to have a variable as a coefficient so

long as it is NOT the variable you are solving for.)

c = 4y 2

• The denominator can never have a value of zero. That stipulation restricts

the domain of the variable to exclude any values that yield a value of zero

for the denominator.

• The domain of the variable is the set of all real numbers that the variable

can use.

• To find any value of the variable that makes the denominator equal zero,

set the denominator equal to zero and solve that equation. This value(s)

must be excluded from the domain of the variable.

Then you set the factor(s) equal to zero and solved for

At that point, you reinsert the original variable and solve for its values from

Since you have x3 and its square x6, you can substitute

in a new variable for x3.

Horizontal Parabolas

• Parabolas can be either vertical or horizontal.

• Vertical parabolas represent functions. Horizontal parabolas do not.

• The x is squared in a vertical parabola.

• The y is squared in a horizontal parabola.

• Sketch a parabola using its orientation and finding the vertex.

• Complete the square to convert from standard form to vertex form.

Those that open sideways do not represent

functions. They fail the vertical line test.

The vertex is (h, k).

Their equations come in both standard and vertex

form. Note that the variables have swapped places

and exponents in these equations.

The axis of symmetry is y = .

This can also be expressed as y = k.

The axis now relies on k rather than h.

the vertex form of the equation.

The axis of symmetry is y = 2 rather than x = h.

The curve opens in the negative direction because

its squared term, (y – 2), has the negative

coefficient –3.
