I can't seem to figure this problem out, there doesn't seem to be enough information.
Find the standard equation of the parabola that has a vertical axis that has x -intercepts -5 and 3 and has a lowest point with a y -coordinate of -7.
I could either do 0 = a(-5 -h)^2 -7 or 0 = a(3 - h)^2 - 7 but either way it seems like I don't have enough information. I guess I could just find a in terms of h or vice verse but I feel like there is an easier solution. Any advice?
