Many thanks in advance!! I'm not good with quadratics and can't even find the function formula for these. A quadratic function passes through the points (0, 4) and (6, 0). Sketch two possible quadratic functions with each of the following properties. a Two roots and a turning point when x = 4. b Exactly one root. Regards, Paul
