Unformatted text preview: Remember that not all parabolas will have x-intercepts. If this is the case you will get complex numbers for solutions. Find the y-intercept by setting x = 0 and solving for y. You will always have exactly one y-intercept when graphing parabolas. In both cases, make sure you write your intercepts as ordered pairs . Slide 6 Applications The position function is one application of quadratic functions. Recall: s(t) = -16t 2 + v t + s Example: #48 Note that in applications where you are asked to find either a maximum or minimum value, you just need to find the vertex. Example: #54...
