xh +k , you can tell
y =a
many things about the parabola including the vertex, axis of symmetry, and the max
or min value which you cant tell when it is in the form y=a x 2 +bx +c .

Graphing Quadratic Functions by Factoring
- To graph a sketch of a quadratic equation, you need the vertex and two other
points.
- These coordinates can be found by factoring
Examples
1. y=x 28 x +12
2
0=x 8 x +12
0=( x2 )( x6 )
