Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[y=(x^214x)+14\] Then I take half the x coefficient and square it. Then I add and subtract that number \[y=(x^214x+4949)+14\] Then I bring the minus number out of the brackets \[y=(x^214x+49)49+14\] Now, what we have done is forced the brackets to be a perfect square. So we can factor \[y=(x7)^249+14\] And just simplify \[y=(x7)^235\] Now that it is in vertex form, we can see that the vertex is (7,35)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Just remember...that in the step where we bring the negative 49 out of the brackets, if there is a number in front of the brackets, you would have had to multiply the 49 by that number when you bring it out.
