Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You could either rewrite it in vertex form, or you could take the halfway point between the two xintercepts. In this case, x = 2 and x = 6 are both yintercepts. A parabola is symmetric so halfway between these points is the line of symmetry. Determine what xvalue this corresponds to and then find the associated y value. These two points will be your vertex.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0expand it out by mutiplying it and then you can use the vertex formula x=b/2a to find the x coordinate of your vertex then sub that x value into your equation to find your y value
