The first four parts of this problem will ask you to use all four methods of finding the coordinates of the vertex. a. Find the zeros of R ( x ), then use the zeros to find the coordinates of the vertex. b. Rewrite the formula for R ( x ) in the ax 2 + bx + c form, then use the a b 2 - formula to find the coordinates of the vertex. c. Rewrite the formula for R ( x ) in vertex form, and use this to identify the vertex. d. On a graphing calculator, graph R ( x ) and find its vertex. e. You should have gotten the same x and y coordinates for the vertex from the first four parts of this problem. Do all your answers agree? f. In this problem, which of the four methods for finding the vertex was the easiest? Why? g. What do the coordinates of the vertex tell you about the cookie sale? Hint for the last two problems: You will need to use the relationship profit = revenue cost . 5. Do problem 60 on page 335 of the textbook. 6. Do problem 63 on page 336 of the textbook. photo credits: gatewayarch.com, goldengatebridge.org

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
