    first of all the parabola definitely opens up indicated by x^2

    because it is positive x^2 whereas if it was -x^2 then you would know it is an upside down parabola or opens down.

    ok, to find the vertex(turning point) simply we need to factorize the equation first.

    do you know how to do that?

    And if the vertex is max or min. And no I do not.

    vertex is definitely a minimum because the graph is opening upwards.

    it's opening upwards so there's a minimum.

    opposite applies so opening downwards, there is a maximum

    I am going to use a visual aide here to show you how this done, I went out on the web and found step by step how to do this.
