# Write a quadratic function in standard form

Vertex form let's use a vertex that you are familiar with: (0,0) use the following steps to write the equation of the quadratic function that contains the vertex (0,0) and the point (2,4) 1 plug in the vertex 2 simplify, if necessary 3 plug in x & y coordinates of the point given 4 solve for a 5. Rewriting the vertex form of a quadratic function into the general form is carried out by expanding the square in the vertex form and grouping like terms example: rewrite f(x) = -(x - 2) 2 - 4 into general form with coefficients a, b and c. Fyi: different textbooks have different interpretations of the reference standard form of a quadratic function some say f (x) = ax2 + bx + c is standard form, while others say that f (x) = a(x - h)2 + k is standard form.

Any quadratic function can be rewritten in standard form by completing the square (see the section on solving equations algebraically to review completing the square) the steps that we use in this section for completing the square will look a little different, because our chief goal here is not solving an equation.

- How can the answer be improved.
- When you graph a quadratic function , the graph will either have a maximum or a minimum point called the vertex the x and y coordinates of the vertex are given by h and k respectively example : write the quadratic functionf given by f(x) = -2 x 2 + 4 x + 1 in standard form and find the vertex of the graph.

Solving 6x²+3=2x-6 by rewriting in standard form and identifying the parameters a, b, and c, that can be used within the quadratic formula. Write a quadratic function in standard form f(x) = -x 2 + 8x-6 : write a quadratic function in standard form f(x) = 2x 2-x-6: solve: step: graph: factor out the 2.
