Express the function $f(x)=2x^2-12x+23$ in the form $a(x-p)^2+q$.

QUADRATIC FUNCTION

$f(x)=2x^2-12x+23=2(x^2-6x+11.5)$

$2[(x-3)^3-9+11.5]$

$2[(x-3)^2+2.5]$

$2(x-3)^2+5$

In this question, $a=2$, $p=3$ and $q=5$. One advantage of this form is that, since $(x-3)^2\geq 0$, we can read off that $f(x)\geq 5$ and that the least value of the function occurs when $x=3$

Surround your text in `*italics*`

or `**bold**`

, to write a math equation use, for example, `$x^2+2x+1=0$`

or `$$\beta^2-1=0$$`
