Step 1: Understanding the question
Vertex form of the Quadratic equation is a$$(x-h)^2$$ + k = 0, where (h,k) are the coordinates of the vertex.

Step 2: Calculation
refer to the attachment
Value of the vertex (h,k) = (1,-2)
Hence quadratic equation is a$$(x-1)^2$$ - 2 = 0
As value of a = 1, as per the options

B is correct

The given function g(x)

If we plugin values of x in the functions only option B function satisfy the graph

$$g(x) = (x-1)^2 - 2$$

Let, x=0

Plugin the value of x=0 in the function

$$g(0)=(0-1)^2 - 2= -1$$

x=1

$$g(1)=(1-1)^2 - 2= -2$$

x= -0.42

$$g(-.42)=g(-.42-1)^2 - 2=0$$

So, only option B satisfy the graph of the curve(parabola) with vertex @ (1,-2)

Option B Re: A graph of the function g(x) is shown above. g(x) is defined   [#permalink] 16 Oct 2020, 05:32
