Dougal Algebra 1 8 -4 Transforming Quadratic Functions Objective Graph and transform quadratic functions. Holt Mc. Dougal Algebra 1 8 -4 Transforming Quadratic Functions Remember! You saw in Lesson 5 -10 that the graphs of all linear functions are transformations of the linear parent function y = x. Holt Mc. Dougal Algebra 1 8 -4 Transforming Quadratic Functions The quadratic parent function is f(x) = x 2. The graph of all other quadratic functions are transformations of the graph of f(x) = x 2. For the parent function f(x) = x 2: • The axis of symmetry is x = 0, or the y-axis. • The vertex is (0, 0) • The function has only one zero, 0. Holt Mc.

Dougal Algebra 1 8 -4 Transforming Quadratic Functions The quadratic function h(t) = – 16 t 2 + c can be used to approximate the height h in feet above the ground of a falling object t seconds after it is dropped from a height of c feet. This model is used only to approximate the height of falling objects because it does not account for air resistance, wind, and other real-world factors. Holt Mc. Dougal Algebra 1 8 -4 Transforming Quadratic Functions Example 3: Application Two identical softballs are dropped. The first is dropped from a height of 400 feet and the second is dropped from a height of 324 feet. a. Write the two height functions and compare their graphs. Step 1 Write the height functions. The y-intercept c represents the original height. h 1(t) = – 16 t 2 + 400 Dropped from 400 feet. h 2(t) = – 16 t 2 + 324 Dropped from 324 feet. Holt Mc. Dougal Algebra 1 8 -4 Transforming Quadratic Functions Example 3 Continued Step 2 Use a graphing calculator. Since time and height cannot be negative, set the window for nonnegative values. The graph of h 2 is a vertical translation of the graph of h 1. Since the softball in h 1 is dropped from 76 feet higher than the one in h 2, the yintercept of h 1 is 76 units higher. Holt Mc. Dougal Algebra 1 8 -4 Transforming Quadratic Functions Example 3 Continued b. Use the graphs to tell when each softball reaches the ground. The zeros of each function are when the softballs reach the ground. The softball dropped from 400 feet reaches the ground in 5 seconds. The ball dropped from 324 feet reaches the ground in 4. 5 seconds Check These answers seem reasonable because the softball dropped from a greater height should take longer to reach the ground.
