## How do you find K and ah?

For a given quadratic y = ax2 + bx + c, the vertex (h, k) is found by computing h = –b/2a, and then evaluating y at h to find k.

## What does the K mean in Y KX?

constant of variation

## How do you read a transformation of a function?

The function translation / transformation rules:

- f (x) + b shifts the function b units upward.
- f (x) – b shifts the function b units downward.
- f (x + b) shifts the function b units to the left.
- f (x – b) shifts the function b units to the right.
- –f (x) reflects the function in the x-axis (that is, upside-down).

## What is a transition in math?

Transition Mathematics aims to increase applied arithmetic, pre-algebra, and pre-geometry skills in students in grades 7–12 . This 1-year curriculum also addresses general application to different wordings of problems, types of numbers, and contexts for problems and aims to promote mathematical reading skills.

## What is reflect in math?

A reflection is a transformation representing a flip of a figure. Figures may be reflected in a point, a line, or a plane. When reflecting a figure in a line or in a point, the image is congruent to the preimage. A reflection maps every point of a figure to an image across a fixed line.

## What are the effects of AH and K?

When written in “vertex form”: (h, k) is the vertex of the parabola, and x = h is the axis of symmetry. the h represents a horizontal shift (how far left, or right, the graph has shifted from x = 0). the k represents a vertical shift (how far up, or down, the graph has shifted from y = 0).

## What does K mean in functions?

Since k is constant (the same for every point), we can find k when given any point by dividing the y-coordinate by the x-coordinate. For example, if y varies directly as x, and y = 6 when x = 2, the constant of variation is k = = 3. Thus, the equation describing this direct variation is y = 3x.

## What are the three basic types of function transformations?

A transformation takes a basic function and changes it slightly with predetermined methods. This change will cause the graph of the function to move, shift, or stretch, depending on the type of transformation. The four main types of transformations are translations, reflections, rotations, and scaling.

## What are the transformations of a function?

A function transformation takes whatever is the basic function f (x) and then “transforms” it (or “translates” it), which is a fancy way of saying that you change the formula a bit and thereby move the graph around. This is three units higher than the basic quadratic, f (x) = x2.

## What can you conclude about the variables of H and K together?

What conclusion can you make about the variables h and k together? they are vertex p determine the max.or min.
