## Summary of standard form.

Standard form = y = ax² + bx + c

a value tells us the direction of opening. If a value is negative parabola opens downwards and if a is positive parabola opens upwards.

Quadratic formula ( in the following picture )

Completing the square help us to find Vertex and change standard to vertex form.

Today I show you the basics of Standard form like How to convert standard to vertex form.

Equation

y = ax² + bx + c

## What does a tells us about.

a tells you the direction of opening. If a value is negative parabola opens downwards and if a is positive parabola opens upwards.

## How to find Vertex by using completing the square and; convert standard to vertex form.

Example: y = 3x² + 6x - 10

y = (3x² + 6x) - 10

y = 3(x² + 2x) - 10 { Take out 3 }

y = 3(x² + 2x +1 -1) - 10 { When you divide 2/2 and then square you get 1}

y = 3(x² +2x +1) -3 -10 {Multiply 3 by -1 you get -3 and take it out }

y = 3(x² +2x +1) - 13

y = (x + 1)² - 13 { Now this is vertex form so the vertex is ( - 13, -1)

## Quadratic formula Example to find x intecepts.

Example : 2x² - 8x -24 = 0

## Discriminant

The discriminant tells us how many solutions (x-intercepts) a parabola will have.

D=b^2-4(a)(c)

a=2

b=6

c=12

D=b^2-4(a)(c)

D=6^2 - 4(2)(12)

D=36-96

D= -60

So, If the 'D' value is less than '0', than there will be no x-intercepts.

If the 'D' value is '0' than there will be 1 x-intercept.

If the 'D' value is greater than '0', than there will be 2 x-intercepts.
