## 6 Questions

### What is the vertex form of a quadratic function?

y = a(x - h)^2 + k

### What does 'h' represent in the vertex form of a quadratic function?

Horizontal shift of the parabola

### In the vertex form of a quadratic function, what does 'a' determine?

Direction and width of the parabola

Both x and y

### What does the coefficient of the squared term in the standard form of a hyperbola determine?

The orientation of the hyperbola

### In the standard form of a hyperbola, what does the difference between the squared terms determine?

The eccentricity of the hyperbola

## Study Notes

• The vertex form of a quadratic function is a way to express the function in terms of its vertex (minimum or maximum point).

### Vertex Form Variables

• In the vertex form, 'h' represents the x-coordinate of the vertex.
• 'a' determines whether the parabola opens upward (a > 0) or downward (a < 0), and its magnitude affects the steepness of the curve.

### Hyperbolas

• In the standard form of a hyperbola, the y variable is squared.

### Hyperbola Coefficients

• The coefficient of the squared term in the standard form of a hyperbola determines the shape of the hyperbola.
• The difference between the squared terms determines the center of the hyperbola.
