2) For the function y = x2 - 6x + 8, perform the following tasks:
a) Put the function in the form y = a(x - h)2 + k.
Answer:
Show work in this space.

b) What is the equation for the line of symmetry for the graph of this function?
Answer:

c) Graph the function using the equation in part a. Explain why it is not necessary to plot points to graph when using y = a (x - h) 2 + k.
Show graph here.

Explanation of graphing.

d) In your own words, describe how this graph compares to the graph of y = x2?
Answer:

3) Suppose a baseball is shot up from the ground straight up with an initial velocity of 32 feet per second. A function can be created by expressing distance above the ground, s, as a function of time, t. This function is s = -16t2 + v0t + s0
• 16 represents ½g, the gravitational pull due to gravity (measured in feet per second 2).
• v0 is the initial velocity (how hard do you throw the object, measured in feet per second).
• s0 is the initial distance above ground (in feet). If you are standing on the ground, then s0 = 0.
a) What is the function that describes this problem?
Answer:

b) The ball will be how high above the ground after 1 second?
Answer:
Show work in this space.

c) How long will it take to hit the ground?
Answer:
Show work in this space.

d) What is the maximum height of the ball?
Answer:
Show work in this space.

You can't expect people to do your homework for you- you won't learn anything from that. At least show some effort so people can see where you have a problem and give hints and suggestions.
