Re: MATH quadratic equation on graph

hi abhishek.ciindore

Welcome to the forum.

If the equation has the form



then you can make three equations by substituting for (x,y) as follows:

(i) (0,0)  (ii) (1,2)  (iii) (6,0)

That should be enough to work out a, b, and c.

Check by substituting each 'x' value into your finished equation to see if it gives the right 'y'.
