    Start with a standard quadratic equation: \[ y = x^2 \]It has an axis of symmetry at 0, so we'll fix that by shifting it over \(1\) horizontally. This is done by replacing \(x\) with \(x-1\). \[ y = (x-1)^2 \]Now the problem is that it opens up. We can reflect it vertically by multiplying it by -1. \[ y = -(x-1)^2 \] And we're done. We can expand it using foil if we want. \[ y = -x^2+2x-1 \]
