Example 2: Finding zeros of quadratic functions from a graph. • A zero of a function is an x-value that makes the function equal to 0. • In other words, the zero of a function is the x-intercept – where the graph crosses the x-axis – of the function. Example 3: Finding zeros of quadratic functions from a graph. Example 4: Finding zeros of quadratic functions from a graph. 1. To see what the zeros are in the graph, see where the parabola crosses the xaxis. . 2. The parabola does NOT cross the x-axis!!! 3. So, there are no zeros of the function. Finding the axis of symmetry. • The axis of symmetry is a vertical line that divides the parabola into two symmetrical sides. • The axis of symmetry passes through the vertex. We are going to use the zeros to find the axis of symmetry.  Example 5: Find the axis of symmetry of the parabola by using zeros. Example 6: Find the axis of symmetry of the parabola by using zeros. Formula for computing the axis of symmetry. • You can use this formula if there are no zeros or the zeros are hard to identify from a graph. This formula works for all quadratic functions. Example 7: Find the axis of symmetry by using the formula. • Example 8: Find the axis of symmetry by using the formula. • Practice (Still part of notes). • Page 535 (3 -6, 8, 9, 12) Finding the vertex of a parabola • Since we know how to find the axis of symmetry, we can now find the vertex of a parabola using the following steps. 1. Find the axis of symmetry of the parabola (x =). 2. Plug in the x-value into the equation to find the y-value. 3. Write the vertex as an ordered pair.
