### Answers − Quadratic Graphs using x and y axis − 1

#### 1. Draw the graph y = x^{2} + 6x + 8

(a) The graph crosses the y axis at the number term c which is 8. When x = 0 then y = 8. The coordinate is (0, 8) |

(c) Draw the graph using the above coordinates |

#### 2. Draw the graph y = x^{2} + 9x + 18

(a) The graph crosses the y axis at the number term c which is 18. When x = 0 then y = 18. The coordinate is (0, 18) |

(b) The graph crosses the x axis where x^{2} + 9x + 18 = 0. Refer to question 2 of Solve Quadratics by Factorising - 1. So y = 0 when x = −6 or −3.The coordinates are (−6, 0) and (−3, 0) |

(c) Draw the graph using the above coordinates |

#### 3. Draw the graph y = x^{2} + x − 56

(a) The graph crosses the y axis at the number term c which is −56. When x = 0 then y = −56. The coordinate is (0, −56) |

(b) The graph crosses the x axis where x^{2} + x − 56 = 0. Refer to question 3 of Solve Quadratics by Factorising - 1. So y = 0 when x = −8 or 7.The coordinates are (−8, 0) and (7, 0) |

(c) Draw the graph using the above coordinates |

#### 4. Draw the graph y = x^{2} + 10x − 24

(a) The graph crosses the y axis at the number term c which is −24. When x = 0 then y = −24. The coordinate is (0, −24) |

(b) The graph crosses the x axis where x^{2} + 10x − 24 = 0. Refer to question 4 of Solve Quadratics by Factorising - 1. So y = 0 when x = −12 or 2.The coordinates are (−12, 0) and (2, 0) |

(c) Draw the graph using the above coordinates |

#### 5. Draw the graph y = x^{2} − 16x + 60

(a) The graph crosses the y axis at the number term c which is 60. When x = 0 then y = 60. The coordinate is (0, 60) |

(b) The graph crosses the x axis where x^{2} − 16x + 60 = 0. Refer to question 5 of Solve Quadratics by Factorising - 1. So y = 0 when x = 6 or 10.The coordinates are (6, 0) and (10, 0) |

(c) Draw the graph using the above coordinates |

#### 6. Draw the graph y = x^{2} − 15x + 36

(b) The graph crosses the x axis where x^{2} − 15x + 36 = 0. Refer to question 6 of Solve Quadratics by Factorising - 1. So y = 0 when x = 3 or 12.The coordinates are (3, 0) and (12, 0) |

(c) Draw the graph using the above coordinates |

#### 7. Draw the graph y = x^{2} − 8x − 48

(a) The graph crosses the y axis at the number term c which is −48. When x = 0 then y = −48. The coordinate is (0, −48) |

(b) The graph crosses the x axis where x^{2} − 8x − 48 = 0. Refer to question 7 of Solve Quadratics by Factorising - 1. So y = 0 when x = −4 or 12.The coordinates are (−4, 0) and (12, 0) |
