Ive tried but these are the ones that are giving me trouble.... 1.) write in vertex form. Identify the vertex g(x)=6+5x-10x^2 2.)solve quadratic equation with any method 3x^2-6x-2=0 3.)solve inequality -3x > 9-12x^2

vertex of parabola 2. factor where 3. solve this

i dont understand 2 and 3. can you walk me through them?
For number two, use what pickleslide suggested the quadratic since it isn't factorable. 3 factor out a 3(4x^2-x-3)>0 divide by 3 4x^2-x-3>0 and this can be factored.
for #1 i got -5/12 wat would the vertex be?
I think it should be 1/4
how? i though vertex form was -b/2(a)
b= and a=-10 Thus, -b=-5 and 2a=-20. Also note that is only the x coordinate. You must plug it in to obtain the y value.
i didnt rearrange the problem that is why. okay now i plug in the x coordinate into -10x^2-5x+6?
Yes. You don't need to rearrange always remember it goes ax^2+bx+c. a is with the squared term and b the x.
-10(1/4)^2-5(1/4)+6= 5? is that correct?
Nope.
can you help me get y value?
