    you just helped someone find the vertex of a parabola using the formula and now you want somemone to derive it for you?

    \[y=ax^2+bx+c\] \[y=a(x+\frac{b}{a})+c\] \[y=a(x+\frac{b}{2a})^2+\color{red}{\text{who cares}}\] since first term is a perfect square it will be greater than or equal to zero if a is positive, less that or equal to zero if a is negative and it will be zero (so that is the max or min) if \[x=-\frac{b}{2a}\]

    i don't care because if i need to find it i can alway replace x by \[-\frac{b}{2a}\] i just don't care to try to keep track of what i added and subtracted. waste of time since i can find it easily
