Quadratic Function

A quadratic function is given as f(x) = ax² + bx + c where a, b and c are coeffiecients. Sometimes, it is also written in the form of f(x) = a(x - h)² + k where (h, k) is the coordinates of the vertex.

Sorry, the GeoGebra Applet could not be started. Please make sure that Java 1.4.2 (or later) is installed and active in your browser (Click here to install Java now)

Slide the values of a, b, c, h and k to observe the change of the graph f(x) = ax² + bx + c and f(x) = a(x - h)² + k. Can you get the formulae relating the values of a, b and c with the values of h and k?
