yx

choice is B.
(c)
The relation

and opens down, so the correct
choice is C.
(d)
The relation

and opens down, so the correct
choice is A.
(e)
The relation

2, 4
−
and opens to the right, so the
correct choice is F.
(f)
The relation
2
has vertex

4, 2
−
and opens to the right, so the
correct choice is H.
(g)
The relation
2
has vertex
( )
2, 4
−
and opens to the left, so the
correct choice is E.
(h)
The relation
2
has vertex
( )
4, 2
−
and opens to the left, so the
correct choice is G.
2. (a)
Since the variable
x
is squared, we know
that the parabola will either open up or
down. Since
y
is isolated and the
coefficient of the
2

x
term is positive, we
know the parabola must open up. Thus,
the correct answer is B.
(b)
Since the variable
x
is squared, we know
that the parabola will either open up or
down. Since
y
is isolated and the
coefficient of the
2

x
term is negative,
we know the parabola must open down.
Thus, the correct answer is D.
(c)
Since the variable
y
is squared, we know
that the parabola will either open to the
left or to the right. Since
x
is isolated and
the coefficient of the
2

y
term is
positive, we know the parabola must open
to the right. Thus, the correct answer is A.
(d)
Since the variable
y
is squared, we know
that the parabola will either open to the
left or to the right. Since
x
is isolated and
the coefficient of the
2

y
term is
negative, we know the parabola must
open to the left. Thus, the correct answer
is C.
