Graph Quadratic Functions in Standard Form You graphed linear functions. You will graph quadratic functions. So you can model sports revenue, as in Example 5.

A quadratic function is a function that can be written in the standard form y 5 ax 2 1 bx 1 c where a Þ 0. The graph of a quadratic function is a parabola.

For Your Notebook

KEY CONCEPT Parent Function for Quadratic Functions

The parent function for the family of all quadratic functions is f(x) 5 x 2. The graph of f(x) 5 x 2 is the parabola shown below. The axis of symmetry divides the parabola into mirror images and passes through the vertex.

y

The lowest or highest point on a parabola is the vertex. The vertex for f (x) 5 x 2 is (0, 0).

In Lesson 4.1, you learned that the standard form of a quadratic function is y 5 ax2 1 bx 1 c where a Þ 0. Another useful form of a quadratic function is the vertex form, y 5 a(x 2 h)2 1 k.

For Your Notebook

KEY CONCEPT Graph of Vertex Form y 5 a(x 2 h)2 1 k The graph of y 5 a(x 2 h)2 1 k is the parabola y 5 ax2 translated horizontally h units and vertically k units. Characteristics of the graph of y 5 a(x 2 h)2 1 k:

X

D

where x and y are measured in feet. What is the distance d between the two towers?

.OTDRAWNTOSCALE

Solution

The vertex of the parabola is (1400, 27). So, a cable’s lowest point is 1400 feet from the left tower shown above. Because the heights of the two towers are the same, the symmetry of the parabola implies that the vertex is also 1400 feet from the right tower. So, the distance between the two towers is d 5 2(1400) 5 2800 feet.

FOOTBALL The path of a placekicked football can

be modeled by the function y 5 20.026x(x 2 46) where x is the horizontal distance (in yards) and y is the corresponding height (in yards). a. How far is the football kicked? b. What is the football’s maximum height?

Solution a. Rewrite the function as y 5 20.026(x 2 0)(x 2 46). Because p 5 0 and

q 5 46, you know the x-intercepts are 0 and 46. So, you can conclude that the football is kicked a distance of 46 yards. b. To find the football’s maximum height, calculate the coordinates of

4.3 Before

Solve x 2 1 bx 1 c 5 0 by Factoring You graphed quadratic functions.

Now

You will solve quadratic equations.

Why?

So you can double the area of a picnic site, as in Ex. 42.

Key Vocabulary • monomial • binomial • trinomial • quadratic equation • root of an equation • zero of a function

A monomial is an expression that is either a number, a variable, or the product of a number and one or more variables. A binomial, such as x 1 4, is the sum of two monomials. A trinomial, such as x2 1 11x 1 28, is the sum of three monomials. You know how to use FOIL to write (x 1 4)(x 1 7) as x2 1 11x 1 28. You can use factoring to write a trinomial as a product of binomials. To factor x2 1 bx 1 c, find integers m and n such that: x2 1 bx 1 c 5 (x 1 m)(x 1 n) 5 x2 1 (m 1 n)x 1 mn So, the sum of m and n must equal b and the product of m and n must equal c.

SOLVING QUADRATIC EQUATIONS You can use factoring to solve certain

quadratic equations. A quadratic equation i n one variable can be written in the form ax2 1 bx 1 c 5 0 where a ? 0. This is called the standard form of the equation. The solutions of a quadratic equation are called the roots of t he equation. If the left side of ax2 1 bx 1 c 5 0 can be factored, t hen the equation can be solved using the zero product property.

4.4 Before Now Why?

Solve ax 2 1 bx 1 c 5 0 by Factoring You used factoring to solve equations of the form x 2 1 bx 1 c 5 0. You will use factoring to solve equations of the form ax 2 1 bx 1 c 5 0. So you can maximize a shop’s revenue, as in Ex. 64.

Key Vocabulary

To factor ax2 1 bx 1 c when a ? 1, find integers k, l, m, and n such that:

• monomial, p. 252

ax2 1 bx 1 c 5 (kx 1 m)(lx 1 n) 5 klx2 1 (kn 1 lm)x 1 mn So, k and l must be factors of a, and m and n must be factors of c.

EXAMPLE 1

Factor ax 2 1 bx 1 c where c > 0

Factor 5x 2 2 17x 1 6. FACTOR EXPRESSIONS When factoring ax2 1 bx 1 c where a > 0, it is customary to choose factors kx 1 m and lx 1 n such that k and l are positive.

Solution You want 5x2 2 17x 1 6 5 (kx 1 m)(lx 1 n) where k and l are factors of 5 and m and n are factors of 6. You can assume that k and l are positive and k ≥ l. Because mn > 0, m and n have the same sign. So, m and n must both be negative because the coefficient of x, 217, is negative. 5, 1

4.5 Before

Solve Quadratic Equations by Finding Square Roots You solved quadratic equations by factoring.

Now

You will solve quadratic equations by finding square roots.

Why?

So you can solve problems about astronomy, as in Ex. 39.

A number r is a square root of a number s if r 2 5 s. A positive number s has two } } square roots, written as Ï s and 2Ï s. For example, because 32 5 9 and (23)2 5 9, } } the two square roots of 9 are Ï 9 5 3 and 2Ï 9 5 23. The positive square root of a number is also called the principal square root.

Key Vocabulary • square root • radical • radicand • rationalizing the

}

}

The expression Ï s is called a radical. The symbol Ï is a radical sign, and the

denominator • conjugates

number s beneath the radical sign is the radicand of the expression.

MODELING DROPPED OBJECTS When an object is dropped, its height h (in feet) above the ground after t seconds can be modeled by the function

h 5 216t 2 1 h0 where h0 is the object’s initial height (in feet). The graph of h 5 216t 2 1 200, representing the height of an object dropped from an initial height of 200 feet, is shown at the right. The model h 5 216t 2 1 h0 assumes that the force of air resistance on the object is negligible. Also, this model works only on Earth. For planets with stronger or weaker gravity, different models are used (see Exercise 39).

ALTERNATIVE METHODS

LESSON 4.5 Another Way to Solve Example 5, page 269 MULTIPLE REPRESENTATIONS In Example 5 on page 269, you solved a quadratic

equation by finding square roots. You can also solve a quadratic equation using a table or a graph.

PROBLEM

METHOD 1

SCIENCE COMPETITION For a science competition, students must design a container that prevents an egg from breaking when dropped from a height of 50 feet. How long does the container take to hit the ground?

Using a Table One alternative approach is to write a quadratic equation and then

use a table of values to solve the equation. You can use a graphing calculator to make the table.

STEP 1 Write an equation that models the situation using the height function h 5 216t 2 1 h0.

h 5 216t 2 1 h0 2

0 5 216t 1 50

Write height function. Substitute 0 for h and 50 for h0.

STEP 2 Enter the function y 5 216x2 1 50 into a graphing calculator. Note that time is now represented by x and height is now represented by y.

Y1=-16X2+50 Y2= Y3= Y4= Y5= Y6= Y7=

STEP 3 Make a table of values for the function. Set the table so that the x-values start at 0 and increase in increments of 0.1.

TABLE SETUP TblStart=0 Tbl=.1 Indpnt: Auto Ask Depend: Auto Ask

STEP 4 Scroll through the table to find the time x at which the height y of the container is 0 feet. The table shows that y 5 0 between x 5 1.7 and x 5 1.8 because y has a change of sign.

X 1.5 1.6 1.7 1.8 1.9

Y1 14 9.04 3.76 -1.84 -7.76

X=1.8

c The container hits the ground between 1.7 and 1.8 seconds after it is dropped.

10/17/05 10:09:27 AM

METHOD 2

Using a Graph Another approach is to write a quadratic equation and then use a

graph to solve the equation. You can use a graphing calculator to make the graph.

STEP 1 Write an equation that models the situation using the height function h 5 216t 2 1 h0.

h 5 216t 2 1 h0

Write height function.

0 5 216t 2 1 50

Substitute 0 for h and 50 for h0.

STEP 2 Enter the function y 5 216x2 1 50 into a graphing calculator. Note that time is now represented by x and height is now represented by y.

Y1=-16X2+50 Y2= Y3= Y4= Y5= Y6= Y7=

STEP 3 Graph the height function. Adjust the viewing window so that you can see the point where the graph crosses the positive x-axis. Find the positive x-value for which y 5 0 using the zero feature. The graph shows that y 5 0 when x ø 1.8. c The container hits the ground about 1.8 seconds after it is dropped.

Zero X=1.767767 Y=0

per square foot) from wind blowing at s miles per hour is given by P 5 0.00256s2. What wind speed produces a pressure of 30 lb/ft 2 ? Solve this problem using a table and using a graph.

8. BIRDS A bird flying at a height of 30 feet carries

a shellfish. The bird drops the shellfish to break it and get the food inside. How long does it take for the shellfish to hit the ground? Find the answer using a table and using a graph. 9. DROPPED OBJECT You are dropping a ball

from a window 29 feet above the ground to your friend who will catch it 4 feet above the ground. How long is the ball in the air before your friend catches it? Solve this problem using a table and using a graph. 10. REASONING Explain how to use the table

feature of a graphing calculator to approximate the solution of the problem on page 272 to the nearest hundredth of a second. Use this procedure to find the approximate solution.

Not all quadratic equations have real-number solutions. For example, x 2 5 21 has no real-number solutions because the square of any real number x is never a negative number. To overcome this problem, mathematicians created an expanded system of } numbers using the imaginary unit i, defined as i 5 Ï 21. Note that i 2 5 21. The imaginary unit i can be used to write the square root of any negative number.

ELECTRICITY Circuit components such as resistors, inductors, and capacitors all oppose the flow of current. This opposition is called resistance for resistors and reactance for inductors and capacitors. A circuit’s total opposition to current flow is impedance. All of these quantities are measured in ohms (Ω). READING Note that while a component’s resistance or reactance is a real number, its impedance is a complex number.

The table shows the relationship between a component’s resistance or reactance and its contribution to impedance. A series circuit is also shown with the resistance or reactance of each component labeled. The impedance for a series circuit is the sum of the impedances for the individual components. Find the impedance of the circuit shown above. Solution The resistor has a resistance of 5 ohms, so its impedance is 5 ohms. The inductor has a reactance of 3 ohms, so its impedance is 3i ohms. The capacitor has a reactance of 4 ohms, so its impedance is 24i ohms. Impedance of circuit 5 5 1 3i 1 (24i) 552i

M AT E R I A L S • algebra tiles

QUESTION

How can you use algebra tiles to complete the square for a quadratic expression?

If you are given an expression of the form x 2 1 bx, you can add a constant c to the expression so that the result x 2 1 bx 1 c is a perfect square trinomial. This process is called completing the square.

Complete the square

Use algebra tiles to model the expression x2 1 6x. You will need to use one x2-tile and six x-tiles for this expression.

Arrange the tiles in a square. You want the length and width of the square to be equal. Your arrangement will be incomplete in one of the corners.

Find the number of 1-tiles needed to complete the square. By adding nine 1-tiles, you can see that x2 1 6x 1 9 is equal to (x 1 3)2.

4.8 Before Now Why?

Key Vocabulary • quadratic formula • discriminant

Use the Quadratic Formula and the Discriminant You solved quadratic equations by completing the square. You will solve quadratic equations using the quadratic formula. So you can model the heights of thrown objects, as in Example 5.

In Lesson 4.7, you solved quadratic equations by completing the square for each equation separately. By completing the square once for the general equation ax2 1 bx 1 c 5 0, you can develop a formula that gives the solutions of any quadratic equation. (See Exercise 67.) The formula for the solutions is called the quadratic formula.

MODELING LAUNCHED OBJECTS In Lesson 4.5, the function h 5 216t 2 1 h0

was used to model the height of a dropped object. For an object that is launched or thrown, an extra term v 0t must be added to the model to account for the object’s initial vertical velocity v 0 (in feet per second). Recall that h is the height (in feet), t is the time in motion (in seconds), and h0 is the initial height (in feet). h 5 216t 2 1 h0

Object is dropped.

2

h 5 216t 1 v0t 1 h0

Object is launched or thrown.

As shown below, the value of v0 can be positive, negative, or zero depending on whether the object is launched upward, downward, or parallel to the ground.

v0 > 0

v0 < 0

EXAMPLE 5

JUGGLING A juggler tosses a ball into the air. The ball leaves the juggler’s hand 4 feet above the ground and has an initial vertical velocity of 40 feet per second. The juggler catches the ball when it falls back to a height of 3 feet. How long is the ball in the air?

Solution Because the ball is thrown, use the model h 5 216t 2 1 v0t 1 h0. To find how long the ball is in the air, solve for t when h 5 3. h 5 216t 2 1 v 0t 1 h0

Key Vocabulary

Graph and Solve Quadratic Inequalities You graphed and solved linear inequalities. You will graph and solve quadratic inequalities. So you can model the strength of a rope, as in Example 2.

A quadratic inequality in two variables can be written in one of the following forms:

• quadratic inequality

y < ax2 1 bx 1 c y ≤ ax2 1 bx 1 c y > ax2 1 bx 1 c y ≥ ax2 1 bx 1 c in two variables • quadratic inequality The graph of any such inequality consists of all solutions (x, y) of the inequality. in one variable

For Your Notebook

KEY CONCEPT

Graphing a Quadratic Inequality in Two Variables To graph a quadratic inequality in one of the forms above, follow these steps:

STEP 1

Graph the parabola with equation y 5 ax 2 1 bx 1 c. Make the parabola dashed for inequalities with < or > and solid for inequalities with ≤ or ≥.

STEP 2 Test a point (x, y) inside the parabola to determine whether the point is a solution of the inequality.

STEP 3 Shade the region inside the parabola if the point from Step 2 is a solution. Shade the region outside the parabola if it is not a solution.

EXAMPLE 1

Graph a quadratic inequality

Graph y > x 2 1 3x 2 4. Solution AVOID ERRORS Be sure to use a dashed parabola if the symbol is > or < and a solid parabola if the symbol is ≥ or ≤ .

STEP 1

Graph y 5 x2 1 3x 2 4. Because the inequality

symbol is >, make the parabola dashed.

STEP 2 Test a point inside the parabola, such as (0, 0).

(0, 0)

y 2x

y > x 2 1 3x 2 4 0? > 02 1 3(0) 2 4 0 > 24 ✓ So, (0, 0) is a solution of the inequality.

STEP 3 Shade the region inside the parabola. "MHFCSB

SYSTEMS OF QUADRATIC INEQUALITIES Graphing a system of quadratic inequalities is similar to graphing a system of linear inequalities. First graph each inequality in the system. Then identify the region in the coordinate plane common to all of the graphs. This region is called the graph of the system.

EXAMPLE 3

Inequality 1 Inequality 2

Solution

STEP 1

Graph y ≤ 2x 2 1 4. The graph is the

y

red region inside and including the parabola y 5 2x 2 1 4.

STEP 2 Graph y > x 2 2 2x 2 3. The graph is the blue region inside (but not including) the parabola y 5 x 2 2 2x 2 3.

STEP 3 Identify the purple region where the

ONE-VARIABLE INEQUALITIES A quadratic inequality in one variable can be

written in one of the following forms: ax2 1 bx 1 c < 0

ax2 1 bx 1 c ≤ 0

ax2 1 bx 1 c > 0

ax2 1 bx 1 c ≥ 0

You can solve quadratic inequalities using tables, graphs, or algebraic methods.

EXAMPLE 4

Solve a quadratic inequality using a table

Solve x 2 1 x ≤ 6 using a table. Solution Rewrite the inequality as x 2 1 x 2 6 ≤ 0. Then make a table of values. MAKE A TABLE To give the exact solution, your table needs to include the x-values for which the value of the quadratic expression is 0.

Notice that x2 1 x 2 6 ≤ 0 when the values of x are between 23 and 2, inclusive. c The solution of the inequality is 23 ≤ x ≤ 2.

GRAPHING TO SOLVE INEQUALITIES Another way to solve ax 2 1 bx 1 c < 0 is to

first graph the related function y 5 ax 2 1 bx 1 c. Then, because the inequality symbol is <, identify the x-values for which the graph lies below the x-axis. You can use a similar procedure to solve quadratic inequalities that involve ≤, >, or ≥.

EXAMPLE 5

Solve a quadratic inequality by graphing

Solve 2x 2 1 x 2 4 ≥ 0 by graphing. Solution The solution consists of the x-values for which the graph of y 5 2x2 1 x 2 4 lies on or above the x-axis. Find the graph’s x-intercepts by letting y 5 0 and using the quadratic formula to solve for x. 0 5 2x 2 1 x 2 4

QUESTION

EXPLORE

How can you fit a quadratic function to a set of data?

Collect and model quadratic data

STEP 1 Collect data Draw five circles using a compass. Use diameters of 1 inch, 2 inches, 3 inches, 4 inches, and 5 inches. Place as many pennies as you can in each circle, making sure that each penny is completely within the circle.

STEP 2 Record data Record your results from Step 1 in a table like the one shown at the right. Also, record the number of pennies that would fit in a circle with a diameter of 0 inch.

STEP 3 Enter data

STEP 4 Display data

Enter the data you collected into two lists of a graphing calculator.

Display the data in a scatter plot. Notice that the points appear to lie on a parabola.

1. Graph your model from Step 5 on the same screen as the scatter plot.

Describe how well the model fits the data. 2. Use your model from Step 5 to predict the number of pennies that will

fit in a circle with a diameter of 6 inches. Check your prediction by drawing a circle with a diameter of 6 inches and filling it with pennies. 3. Explain why you would expect the number of pennies that fit inside

a circle to be a quadratic function of the circle’s diameter. 4. The diameter of a penny is 0.75 inch. Use this fact to write a quadratic

function giving an upper limit L on the number of pennies that can fit inside a circle with diameter x inches.

Plan INTERPRET THE GRAPH The graph is a parabola passing through the points (0, 3) and (3, 0). In order to find the initial vertical velocity of the tennis ball, you must write an equation of the parabola.

STEP 1 Write the model for an object that is launched.

STEP 2 Use the initial height in your model.

STEP 3 Find the initial vertical velocity by substituting a point on the parabola.

Solution Because the tennis ball is launched, the parabola has an equation of the form h 5 216t 2 1 v0t 1 h0 where v 0 is the initial vertical velocity and h0 is the initial height of the tennis ball. The graph passes through (0, 3), so the initial height of the tennis ball is 3 feet. When you substitute 3 for h0 in the model, you obtain h 5 216t 2 1 v 0t 1 3. Use the fact that the graph of h 5 216t 2 1 v 0t 1 3 passes through (3, 0) to find the initial vertical velocity v 0. 0 5 216(3)2 1 v 0 (3) 1 3
