SHORT ANSWER. Write the word or phrase that best completes each statement or answers the question.

Determine whether the graph of f opens upward or downward and whether the graph is wider, narrower, or the same as the graph of y = x2. Find the axis of symmetry and the vertex. Find the y-intercept and any x-intercepts. Sketch a graph of f.

34) f(x) = x2 - 4x - 5

35) f(x) = - (1/2)x2 - x + 4

36) f(x) = 3x - x2
