To interpret the graph of a quadratic function, consider the following key points:

Vertex: The vertex represents the highest or lowest point on the graph, depending on whether the parabola opens upwards or downwards, respectively. It is the turning point of the graph.

Axis of Symmetry: The axis of symmetry is a vertical line passing through the vertex that divides the parabola into two symmetrical halves.

Roots (or Zeros): The roots of the quadratic function are the points where the graph intersects the xaxis. These are the solutions to the quadratic equation f(x) = 0.

Direction of Opening: The direction in which the parabola opens is determined by the coefficient of the squared term (a) in the quadratic function. If a > 0, the parabola opens upwards; if a < 0, it opens downwards.

yintercept: The yintercept is the point where the graph intersects the yaxis. It can be found by substituting x = 0 into the quadratic function.
By considering these aspects of the graph, you can interpret the behavior and characteristics of the quadratic function visually.

When evaluating a onesided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
