Review of Functions + Other Basics

(§ 2.1-2.5, 4.1-4.4)

Ex 1 Let p(x) = 4x2 + 3x - 1

a) p is a quadratic

Evaluations: p(0) = -1

p(3) = 36 + 9 - 1 = 44

p(x + 2) vs. p(x) + 2

= 4(x + 2)2 + 3(x + 2) ² 1 = 4x2+3x+1

= 4(x2 + 4x + 4) + 3x + 6 - 1

= 4x2 + 16x + 16 + 3x + 6 - 1

= 4x2 + 19x + 21 * in descending powers

Find a function g such that g(x + 2) = p(x) = 4x2 + 3x ² 1

/HW·VWU\JRIWKHIRUPJ[ D[2 + bx + c

We solve for a, b, c

a(x + 2)2 + b(x + 2) + c = 4x2 + 3x - 1

ax2 + 4ax + 4a + bx + 2b + c = 4x2 + 3x ² 1

, · , a = 4

16 + b = 3

b = -13

You check that c=9.

y = p(x) = a(x + h)2 + k where a, h, k are constants.

p(x) = 4x2 + 3x ² 1

= 4(x2 + 3/4 x) ² 1

= 4(x2 + 3/4 x + 9/64 - 9/64) ² 1

= 4(x2 + 3/8 x)2 ² 19/16 ² 16/16

= 4(x2 + 3/8 x)2 ² 25/16

¶D K 3/8, k = -25/16

Domain of p is all real numbers (i.e., R or (-

Vertex is the point (-3/8 , -25/16 ).

Parabola opens up.

Quadratic Formula givers p(x) = 0 when x = -1, 1/9.
