    ok... well just looking at it then.... there's a minimum y value of -9

    but the maximum y value... as its a parabola there isn't one

    also with the x values.... its a vertical parabola.... so it appears to continue out both left and right to infinity... so no maximum or minimums there

    well... no, that's kinda more how you write coordinates (x,y) and the min y value is -9... not the mix x value

    well... if you were going to write it as a a coordinate... the coordinates for the minimum y value are ( 3, -9 ) other then that, there are no minimum x values or maximums
