Find the quadratic equation whose roots are 1/2 and 6. |
2x2 - 13x + 6 = 0 |

The curve y = -2x2 is shifted so that its axis of symmetry is the line x = -2 and its orthogonal axis is y = 8. Find the equation of the new curve. | Correct Answer: Answer: y = - 2(x + 2)2 + 8 The new curve is symmetric about x = -2 and is shifted up by 8 units. So the equation of the new curve is

y = - 2(x + 2)2 + 8|
