In this lecture we were introduced to the intercept form, or factored form, of the quadratic equation.

This form is incredibly useful for quickly seeing where the curve crosses the x-axis - hence it’s name.

For your challenge, find the equation in intercept form for the curve that runs through the points (2,0), (5,3), and (8,0).

Remember that this will be in the form; y = a(x - p)(x - q)

‘p’ and ‘q’ should be easy to plug in. You can then find ‘a’ by solving the equation using the other point.

Post your answers below and remember to use the spoiler tags.
