Lesson 11
Graphing from the Factored Form
Problem 1
Select all true statements about the graph that represents \(y=2x(x-11)\).
Its \(x\)-intercepts are at \((\text-2,0)\) and \((11,0)\).
Its \(x\)-intercepts are at \((0,0)\) and \((11,0)\).
Its \(x\)-intercepts are at \((2,0)\) and \((\text-11,0)\).
It has only one \(x\)-intercept.
The \(x\)-coordinate of its vertex is -4.5.
The \(x\)-coordinate of its vertex is 11.
The \(x\)-coordinate of its vertex is 4.5.
The \(x\)-coordinate of its vertex is 5.5.

Problem 2
Select all equations whose graphs have a vertex with \(x\)-coordinate 2.
\(y=(x-2)(x-4)\)
\(y=(x-2)(x+2)\)
\(y=(x-1)(x-3)\)
\(y=x(x+4)\)
\(y=x(x-4)\)

Problem 3
Determine the \(x\)-intercepts and the \(x\)-coordinate of the vertex of the graph that represents each equation.
equation | \(x \)-intercepts | \(x\)-coordinate of the vertex |
---|---|---|
\(y=x(x-2)\) | ||
\(y=(x-4)(x+5)\) | ||
\(y= \text-5x (3-x)\) |

(From Unit 5, Lesson 14.)Problem 9
Here are graphs of two exponential functions, \(f\) and \(g\).
The function \(f\) is given by \(f(x) = 100 \boldcdot 2^x\) while \(g\) is given by \(g(x) = a \boldcdot b^x\).
Based on the graphs of the functions, what can you conclude about \(a\) and \(b\)?
