Finding the axis of symmetry. 1) Identify a, b, and c in the equation f(x) = 4x² - 1 ⇒ a = 4 ; b = 0 ; c = -1 g(x) = x² - 8x + 5 ⇒ a = 1 ; b = -8 ; c = 5 h(x) = -3x² - 12x + 1 ⇒ a = -3 ; b = -12 ; c = 1 2) Formula of the axis of symmetry x = -b/2a f(x) ⇒ x = -0/2(4) = 0 g(x) ⇒ x = -(-8)/2(1) = 8/2 = 4 h(x) ⇒ x = -(-12)/2(-3) = 12/-6 = -2 Rank from least to greaters: -2, 0, 4 ⇒ h(x) ; f(x) ; g(x) CHOICE D
