## How do you work out the turning point of an equation?

When y = (x + a)2 + b then the coordinates of the turning point is (−a, b). The minimum or maximum value of y is b. Given that the minimum turning point of a quadratic curve is (1, −6), find an equation of the curve in the form y = x2 + ax + b. Hence sketch the curve.

## How do you create a segment in geogebra?

Tool Categories (All tools) Select two points A and B in order to create a segment between A and B.

**How do you work out the turning point of completing the square?**

A turning point can be found by re-writting the equation into completed square form. When the function has been re-written in the form y=r(x+s)2+t, the minimum value is achieved when x=-s, and the value of y will be equal to t.

**What is maximum turning point?**

A maximum turning point is a turning point where the curve is concave up (from increasing to decreasing ) and f′(x)=0 f ′ ( x ) = 0 at the point.

### What is the use of angle tool in GeoGebra?

If the polygon was created by selecting its vertices in counter clockwise orientation, the Angle tool gives you the interior angles of the polygon. Angles are created in counter clockwise orientation.

### What are turning points on a graph?

A turning point is a point of the graph where the graph changes from increasing to decreasing (rising to falling) or decreasing to increasing (falling to rising). A polynomial of degree n will have at most n – 1 turning points.

**How do you find the slope of two given points?**

There are three steps in calculating the slope of a straight line when you are not given its equation.

- Step One: Identify two points on the line.
- Step Two: Select one to be (x1, y1) and the other to be (x2, y2).
- Step Three: Use the slope equation to calculate slope.

**How do you bisect a segment on GeoGebra?**

Construction: Bisect a line segment

- Select compass tool.
- Click on point A then point B to set compass width, then click on A again to set compass in place.
- Click on point A then point B again, then click on point B to set compass in place.
- Choose the point icon to mark the points where the compasses intersect.
- Draw a line segment between C and D.

#### Is Turning Point software free?

TurningPoint app is free to download but still requires the purchase of a TurningPoint subscription. Download and install the TurningPoint App from the Apple store or the Android Play Store.

#### How do you plot points on a graph?

Example 4: Plot the point (–2, –5) and identify which quadrant or axis it is located. Place a dot at the origin (center of the x y xy xy-axis). Since x = −2, move the point 2 units to the left along the x-axis. Finally, go down 5 units parallel to the y-axis because y = −5.

**How do you copy an angle?**

Refer to the figure as you work through these steps:

- Draw a working line, l, with point B on it.
- Open your compass to any radius r, and construct arc (A, r) intersecting the two sides of angle A at points S and T.
- Construct arc (B, r) intersecting line l at some point V.
- Construct arc (S, ST).

**What is a turning point?**

: a point at which a significant change occurs.

## How do you construct a perpendicular line in GeoGebra?

Constructing a Perpendicular Line

- Construct a circle centered at point C that goes through point A.
- Label the intersection points of the circle and the line as A and D.
- After you are done, drag points A, B, and C to verify that your construction will always produce a perpendicular line.

## What are the coordinates of the turning point for the function f/x x 2 3 − 4?

The coordinates of the turning point for the function f(x) = (x + 2)3 – 4 are (-2, -4).

**Which tool is used to draw a line segment in GeoGebra software?**

It’s the polygon tool, and is useful for drawing sets of straight line segments that you want to form a polygon.

**How do you find the turning point of a quadratic graph?**

The turning point will always be the minimum or the maximum value of your graph. To find the turning point of a quadratic equation we need to remember a couple of things: The parabola ( the curve) is symmetrical. If we know the x value we can work out the y value!

### What is the turning point of a parabola?

If the parabola opens up, the vertex represents the lowest point on the graph, or the minimum value of the quadratic function. If the parabola opens down, the vertex represents the highest point on the graph, or the maximum value. In either case, the vertex is a turning point on the graph.

### How do you copy an angle in GeoGebra?

Copying an Angle

- Create points and not on or.
- Using the Segment tool, construct line segment.
- Create point on.
- Using the Compass tool, create circle with radius centered @
- Using the Intersect tool, create the point of intersection between and circle.
- Using the Compass tool, create circle with radius centered @

**How do you find the turning point on Desmos?**

Team Desmos All you have to do is click and hold your mouse button down on top of a graph, and you’ll see the closest set of coordinates appear. The trace will stick on points of interest, like maximums, minimums, y-intercepts, roots, and intersections.

**How do you find the maximum turning point?**

First, identify the leading term of the polynomial function if the function were expanded. Then, identify the degree of the polynomial function. This polynomial function is of degree 4. The maximum number of turning points is 4 – 1 = 3.

#### Is the turning point a maximum or minimum?

The location of a stationary point on f(x) can be identified by solving f'(x) = 0. To work out which is the minimum and maximum, differentiate again to find f”(x). Input the x value for each turning point. If f”(x) > 0 the point is a minimum, and if f”(x) < 0, it is a maximum.

#### How do you find the turning point on a graphing calculator?

TI-84: Finding Graph Coordinates (Tracing)

- Press [Trace]. Then use the right and left arrow keys to move along the curve.
- Use the Up or Down arrow keys to switch functions. Then use the Right and Left arrow keys to trace.
- Alternatively, [2nd] [CALC] provides a menu of items. Choose “5: intersect”.
