I had to find the coordinates of the vertex and the equation of the axis of symmetry for the parabola given the by the equation h(x)=-1/2x to the 2nd power +4x-8 and the answer I came up with...

Two parabolas y=16-3x2 and y=x2-9 are drawn. A rectangle is contructed with sides parallel to the coordinate axes with the two upper vertices on the graph of y=16-3x2 and the two lower vertices...

conic sections - parabolas, ellipses and hyperbolas. Look around in your day (home, work, etc) and see if you observe any of the conic sections. In each explanation, indiciate what...

So, I was playing with an online graphing calculator and I plugged in 0.5x2 x2 and 2x2 and when I went up to higher numbers, such as x=10, I noticed they were unevenly spaced. This...

A mirror with a parabolic cross section is used to collect sunlight on a pipe located at the focus of the mirror. The pipe is located 5 inches from the vertex of the mirror

Two satellites are orbiting earth. The path of one has the equation x^2 +y^2 = 2250000. The orbit of the other is 200 km farther from the center of earth. In one orbit, how much farther does the...
