    here is a simple method in a quadratic \[y = ax^2 + bx + c\] the line of symmetry is found using \[x = \frac{-b}{2a}\] so in your question a = 3 and b = 6 so find the line of symmetry now the vertex always lies on the line of symmetry, so substitute you answer into the equation to find the value of y.

    the alternative is to factor out 3 \[y = 3(x^2 + 2x + 1) \] now factor

    Coordinates are (-b/2a,-d/4a) b=6 a=3 d=b^2-4ac=6^2-4×3×6=-36 Now put values in coordinates of vertax

    Then after I plugged in -1 for x in the equation 3(-1^2)+6(1)+3=6

    So the coordinates would be (-1,6) ?

    well x= -1 is correct... so you substitution has an error \[f(-1) = 3 \times (-1)^2 + 6 \times (-1) + 3 = 0\] so y = 0 and x = -1 then the vertex is (-1, 0) if you factor \[Y = -3(x^2 + 2x + 1) ~~~becomes~~~~y=3(x + 1)^2\] so comparing it to \[y = a(x - h)^2 + k\] h = -1 and k = 0 which is what you go

    Oh I see where I made the mistake, I was supposed to do it 3(1)^2. Thank you for your help, again!
