In the standard form of a quadratic function is given as follows.

`y = ax^2+bx+c` where `a != 0`


`y = -0.05x^2-x+1`

This formula is in standard form. So we don't need o change it.

But generally we don't -0.05 terms in the function. We can round that to a whole number.

`y = -0.05x^2-x+1`

`100y = 100*(-0.05)x^2-100x+100`

So the general form can be given as;

`100y = -5x^2-100x+100`
