POLQ 3 | Lesson 1 | Explore 1 (Multiplying two Linear Functions)

In this activity you will graphically (by multiplying points) explore how multiplying two linear functions results in a quadratic. You will also practice with existing functions to see the results of adding and multiplying linear and quadratic functions on a graph.

1. Find the equation of the line shown below. Write the equation in slope-intercept form and then in \(y = m(x + c)\) form.  For example, if the equation in slope-intercept form were \( y = 2x + 4\) then in the second form it would be \(y = 2(x+ 2)\).
