    Exclamation Quadratic - Vertex Form

    Hey, I am doing this review and have a question (and may have a few more) It's been so long since I have done this I forget!

    What value of p and q make x+14x=(x-h)+k

    there doesn't seem to be a p and a q, but i will take a stab in the dark you mean this


    we will complete the square for x+14x

    x + 14x + 49 (you halve the 14 = 7 and then square the result = 49)

    then to balance the addition of 49 you need to subtract 49 as well

    x + 14x + 49 - 49

    factoring:

    (x + 7) - 49


    hope that is what you are after
