Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, we learn how to determine the quadratic equation given a vertex and a point. By using the standard form, we can easily plug in the given vertex and solve for the variable A by plugging in the given point. Once we find A, we can write the quadratic equation in standard form, and even convert it into quadratic form if needed.

Lesson Description:

Determining the quadratic equation given a vertex and a point

I show how to solve math problems online during live instruction in class. This is my way of providing free tutoring for the students in my class and for students anywhere in the world. Every video is a short clip that shows exactly how to solve math problems step by step. The problems are done in real time and in front of a regular classroom. These videos are intended to help you learn how to solve math problems, review how to solve a math problems, study for a test, or finish your homework. I post all of my videos on YouTube, but if you are looking for other ways to interact with me and my videos you can follow me on the following pages through My Blog, Twitter, or Facebook.

Questions answered by this video:
  • What are the two forms of a quadratic equation?
  • How do you find the value of 'a' in f(x)=a(x-2)²+3 given a point on the curve to be (0,2)?
