Formulas to use on the chapter 3-6 Exam in Pre-Calculus
Transformation form: f(x) = a(x h)2 + k
The vertex is (h, k).
y-intercept is f(0) = ah2 + k
x-intercepts are h
Polynomial form: f(x) = ax2 + bx + c
Find the x-intercepts by

Introduction to Conic Sections
While some conic sections are functions, not all of them are. Sometimes it is
necessary to use two functions to graph a conic section. The Zsquare function in
