OpenStudy (anonymous):

get the same -1/2

OpenStudy (anonymous):

whats the second half though

OpenStudy (anonymous):

sorry ? pardon ??

OpenStudy (anonymous):

like the first point is -1/2 but i need another one bc the vertex makes up two points

OpenStudy (radar):

the -1/2 is the x in P(-1/2,y) the other point can be obtained from the equation, substitute the -1/2 for x and solve for y.

OpenStudy (radar):

* change to read: the y value can be obtained from the equation, substitute the -1/2 for x and solve.
