## How do the solutions of a quadratic equation relate to the graph of the function?

## How do the solutions of a quadratic equation relate to the graph of the function?

The solutions of a quadratic equation represent the points on a graph where a parabola intersects the x-axis. That is, when y = 0 or when f(x) = 0. Remember that we can graph a quadratic function f(x) = ax2 + bx + c as a parabola (shown below). A quadratic equation is graphed as a parabola.

## Can all quadratic equations be solved by graphing?

Don’t be fooled: Not all quadratic equations can be solved by factoring. For example, x2 – 3x = 3 is not solvable with this method. One way to solve quadratic equations is by completing the square; still another method is to graph the solution (a quadratic graph forms a parabolaâ€”a U-shaped line seen on the graph).

**What is a related function in algebra?**

A relation from a set X to a set Y is called a function if each element of X is related to exactly one element in Y. That is, given an element x in X, there is only one element in Y that x is related to. For example, consider the following sets X and Y.

### How do you determine a relation is a function?

A set of ordered pairs is a function if it passes the vertical line test. Because there are no more than one corresponding value for any given value, the relation of ordered pairs IS a function.

### How do you find a quadratic function from a graph?

Graph Quadratic Equations in Two Variables

- Write the quadratic equation with. on one side.
- Determine whether the parabola opens upward or downward.
- Find the axis of symmetry.
- Find the vertex.
- Find the y-intercept.
- Find the x-intercepts.
- Graph the parabola.

**What are related graphs?**

The graph of a relation R is the set of all points (x, y) in a coordinate plane such that x is related to y through the relation R. 1.2.2. EXAMPLE. The map of Australia below graphically represents a. relation since any set in a coordinate plane does it.

#### What does a relation look like on a graph?

A graph can represent a relation by considering it as a big list of ordered pairs. Each dot on the graph represents an ordered pair (x, y). Notice that if we can draw a vertical line that intersects the graph twice we will be able to identify one x-value with two corresponding y-values.

#### What does it mean to solve by graphing?

A system of linear equations contains two or more equations e.g. y=0.5x+2 and y=x-2. The solution of such a system is the ordered pair that is a solution to both equations. To solve a system of linear equations graphically we graph both equations in the same coordinate system.

**How do you determine the relation is a function?**

## What is relation function?

A function is a relation which describes that there should be only one output for each input (or) we can say that a special kind of relation (a set of ordered pairs), which follows a rule i.e., every X-value should be associated with only one y-value is called a function. For example: Domain. Range. -1.

## WHAT IS A in quadratic relation?

In all the examples that you will be using, the value for ‘a’ will always be 1 (i.e. y = x2 + bx + c). The factored form of the equation for a quadratic relation is y = a(x – r)(x – s), a product of three factors. The values, a, r, and s, are values that also determine the shape and position of the parabola.

**How would you relate quadratic function in our present situation?**

Throwing a ball, shooting a cannon, diving from a platform and hitting a golf ball are all examples of situations that can be modeled by quadratic functions. In many of these situations you will want to know the highest or lowest point of the parabola, which is known as the vertex.
