Quiz 5 Solutions 1) Factor: ) 2 )( 2 3 ( + = x x y . So zeroes/x-intercepts are x=-2/3 and x=2 Vertex is at 3 / 16 ) 3 / 2 ( 3 / 2 ) 3 ( 2 / 4 2 / = = = = f a b x So vertex is at (2/3, -16/3). Since the lead term has a positive coefficient, the parabola opens upward. So given points (-2/3, 0), (2,0), and vertex (2/3, -16/3), we can graph as follows: 2) Factor denominator: ) 4 )( 3 ( + + x x . So vertical asymptotes are x=-3 and x=-4
