Systems Involving Non Linear Equations

As expected, solving systems of linear equations can be extended into systems involving non linear equations such as quadratic equations. Examples of quadratic equations include parabolas, circles, ellipses, and hyperbolas. One important distinction between these systems and the previous linear … Continue reading

1. Graphing Square Root Functions

You can graph any square root function by comparing it with its parent function¬† Use the generic form of a square root function where the constants a,h, and k adjust the graph from its original parent graph (below). a When … Continue reading
