Im graphing a parabola using the function; y = 3x^2  6x + 1. My question says what is the equation of the axis of symmetry, how would I solve it? (simple easy version plzz) xD

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now looking at this you could also solve it graphically if that helps understand why amistre's equation is what it is

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so when they say axis of symmetry the mean, graphically, where on the graph could you make a line so that if you put a mirror on that line you would see a mirror image of whatever is on the other side. so here it was y=1, which is a straight line going up and down from x=1. so if you put a mirror on that line, looking at the graph, would you see the mirror image?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i dunno that is something you cant explain, you just have to look at the graph and see what i mean since it is really obvious in this case. just think about it and you will get it :)
