    Would it be like y=-2(0)^2+32(0)-12 ?

    no what you have there is the intercept on y-axis

    you need to change it to the vertex form y = –2x^2 + 32x –12 = -2(x^2 - 16x + 6) = -2( x - 8)^2 -64 + 6) = -2[(x-8)^2 - 58)] so the x coordinate at maximum = 8 a negative coefficient before x^3 means there is a maximum value
