Parabolas : Intercepts, Vertex and Line of Symmetry

Use f(x)=-2(x+3)^2+4 to find the following values. Round any answers to two decimal places. You must show work for each answer choice or provide justification.

4a. y-intercept as an ordered pair.
4b. Determine the axis of symmetry written as an equation.
4c. Vertex as an ordered pair?
4d. Domain, in interval notation.
4e. Range, in interval notation.
4f. X-intercepts - both exact and approximate values (show all work).

Use f(x)=-2(x+3)^2+4 to find the following values. Round any answers to two decimal places. You must show work for each answer choice or provide justification.

4a. y-intercept as an ordered pair.

To get y-intercept, we let x=0. So,
...
