# Quad Functions

### Quad Functions - Algebra 2, Chapter 9 Review

QuestionAnswer
What is the Axis of Symmetry formula (also used to find x value of vertex)? x= -b/2a
What is the 1st step to solve by SQUARE ROOTS? ISOLATE the x2 term
What is the 1st step to solve by FACTORING? Set equation equal to 0.
√(-25) No Solution
What is the best method for x^2 + 5x = -6 ? BUM (factoring)(Hint: Trinomial)
What is the best method for X^2 = 10x ? GCF (factoring) (Hint: Binomial)
What is the best method for x^2 – 10x + 20 = 0? Quadratic Formula
What method do you use for x^2 – 9 = 0? Square Roots
Describe the parabola and name the Vertex & Axis of symmetry of y = 2x^2 – 6. Opens up Vertex: (0, -6) / Min. Axis of Symmetry: x = 0
Describe the parabola and name the Vertex & Axis of symmetry of y = -9x^2. Opens down Vertex: (0, 0) / Max. Axis of Symmetry: x = 0
Describe the parabola and name the Vertex & Axis of symmetry of y = -9x2+ 1. Opens down Vertex: (0, 1) / Max. Axis of Symmetry: x = 0
How many solutions if the discriminant is >0? 2solutions
How many solutions if the discriminant is <0? No solution
What is the best method for: A football player punts a ball that can be modeled by the equation y = -0.004x^2 + x + 2.5 where x is the horizontal distance, in feet, and y is the height. How far from the punter will the ball land? Quadratic Formula (answer will be positive value).
After finding the x-value of the vertex, how do you choose more points? Add and subtract the same # (ex. +1 and -1)
What is the 1st step to solve using the QUADRATIC FORMULA? Set equation equal to 0.
How many solutions if the discriminant =0? 1solution
What is the best method for 6x^2 – 18 = 0? Square Roots
What is the best method for 3x^2 – 18x + 67 = 0? Quadratic Formula
What is the best method for x^2 – 11x + 18 = 0? BUM Factoring
What is the best method for x^2 + 18 = 0? Square Roots
What is the best method for x^2 + 14x = 0? GCF Factoring
What is the best method for: A child throws a ball into the air with an initial velocity (v) of 15 feet/second from an initial height (c) of 2 feet. Find the maximum height of the ball. Find the vertex. (Answer will be y-value).
How do find the solutions to x^2 + 6x = 0? Find the GCF, then set each factor equal to 0.
How do find the solutions to (x+3)(x-2) = 0? Set each factor equal to 0.
After finding the x-value of the vertex, how do you find the y-values? Substitute the x-values into the equation.

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

• SPACEBAR - flip the current card
• LEFT ARROW - move card to the Don't know pile
• RIGHT ARROW - move card to Know pile
• BACKSPACE - undo the previous action

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
