two parabolas on graph paper. Both parabolas cross the x-axis at (–4, 0) and (6, 0). The y-intercept of the first parabola is (0, –12). The y-intercept of the second parabola is (0, –24). What is the positive difference between the a values for the two functions that describe the parabolas? Write your answer as a decimal rounded to the nearest tenth. Mark
