# What is the derivative graph of a parabola?

## What is the derivative graph of a parabola?

Let the equation of the parabola will be y=ax2+bx+c. Hence the derivative graph of the parabola is Straight Line.

## What is the derivative of a graph?

The derivative of a function f(x) is the function whose value at x is f′(x). The graph of a derivative of a function f(x) is related to the graph of f(x). Where f(x) has a tangent line with positive slope, f′(x)>0.

What is the first derivative of a parabola?

Yes: the graph of a quadratic is a parabola, either opening upward or downward! For example, the 1st derivative of f(x) = 5×2 + 2x – 1 is 10x + 2. The 2nd derivative is simply 10, indicating concave up, for all values of x; and indeed f(x) is concave up everywhere—and its critical point is a local minimum.

### What is the graph of a parabola?

The graph of a quadratic function is a U-shaped curve called a parabola. The extreme point ( maximum or minimum ) of a parabola is called the vertex, and the axis of symmetry is a vertical line that passes through the vertex. The x-intercepts are the points at which the parabola crosses the x-axis.

### Which graph is the derivative of the top graph?

original function
Derivative Graph Rules The top graph is the original function, f(x), and the bottom graph is the derivative, f'(x).

How do you find the derivative of a curve?

The derivative of the parametrically defined curve x=x(t) and y=y(t) can be calculated using the formula dydx=y′(t)x′(t). Using the derivative, we can find the equation of a tangent line to a parametric curve.

#### What is the derivative of quadratic?

The derivative function of a quadratic function is a linear function. As Fermat already knew, at a local maximum or minimum the tangent is horizontal, the derivative is 0. We can see that at the vertex of a parabola the tangent is horizontal and that the derivative of the function cuts the x-axis at this value.
