a. the quadratic regression equation is y=
(type an expression using x as the variable. use integers or decimals for any numbers in the expression. round to the nearest thousandth as needed.)
a quadratic function is a function in which the highest degree term is 2.
when the degree is two and the equation is a quadratic then the graph looks like a parabola always .
in the given options only option c is parabola so correct option is c.
option a is not parabola .(it is for cubic)
option b is a straight line means linear function .
option d cuts the x axis more than 2 times so it cannot be a quadratic .
so correct option is c
answer: (0,-1) and (1/3,0)
