Quadratic Curve in Factor form
Key in equation in factor form y = (x - p) (x - q) or y = -(x - p) (x - q) . Find x and y intercepts, line of symmetry and finally the coordinate of the max or min point.
Find the following: 1. x and y intercepts 2. Equation of line of symmetry. 3. Coordinates of the max or min point. 4. Sketch the graph of the curve in a foolscap paper.
