    Use the equation to find the axis of symmetry. \[x=\frac{ -b }{ 2a }\]

    i would do 1st derivative test

    Once you've done that, substitute the x-value into the equation to find y.

    Yeah 1st derivative test to find the vertex. very smart....not. I don't think a question like this would require such thing.

    isnt the vertex just where the graph goes from increasing to decreasing.... or decreasing to increasing?

    All you need for this question is finding the axis of symmetry and then subbing that value into the equation to find y.

    You're overcomplicating a simple question.

    either way takes a short time... but if he showed his teacher the calculus way... ied give him extra credit XDDDDDDDDDDD
