    - b/2a gives the x-coordinate of the vertex.

    Find the vertex of the parabola. y = 3x^2 + 12x – 12, Here, a = 3 and b = 12. So, the x-coordinate of the vertex is: x= -12/2(3)=-2 Substituting in the original equation to get the y-coordinate, we get: y = 3(–2)^2 + 12(–2) – 12 = –24 So, the vertex of the parabola is at (–2, –24).
