" # # ! " \$ % \$ % . * The axis of symmetry of the parabola has equation a b x 2 ! = . * To graph a quadratic function: Step 1: Determine whether the parabola opens up or down. Step 2: Find the vertex. Step 3: Find the x -intercepts (if any) and y -intercept. Step 4: Plot the graph. [Find additional points as needed.] Graph each parabola, Give the vertex, axis, domain, and range.
