Hi,
I'm in Grade Twelve Academic Math and I need to know how to find the minimum of any given problem.
PLEASE PUT DOWN STEPS to finding the minimum, not just writing a question then jumping to the answer.
I would really appreciate the help.
well, there are several ways of doing this. the two most prominent ways are to: (1) complete the square, or (2) use the vertex formula.
note that only quadratics where the coefficient of x^2 is positive have a minimum value, and it occurs at their vertex. post a specific question if you want to see these methods demonstrated
