    For any parabola of the form \(ax^2+bx+c=0 \) the vertex will be at \( \large \left(-\frac b {2a} , -\frac {b^2-4ac}{4a}\right) \).Equation of line of symmetry will be at \(x=-\frac b {2a} \) Maximum and minimum values will be at \( \large \left(-\frac b {2a} , -\frac {b^2-4ac}{4a}\right) \) and \( \large \left(-\frac b {2a} , -\frac {b^2-4ac}{4a}\right) \) for \(a<0\) and \(a>0\) respectively.

    @FoolForMath but that does not lead to the correct answer

    can we do this like : 4-5x-4x^2 4-4(x^2+5x/4) 4-4(x^2+5x4 +25/64) + 25/16 ?

    4-4(x^2+5x4 +25/64) + 25/16 89/16-4((x+5/8)^2) hence it as min. value of 89/16 at x =-5/8 is it right ?

    Yes, for every minimum you find I can find another x which gives a lesser value ...
