The functions f(x) = (x + 1)2 − 2 and g(x) = –(x − 2)2 + 1 have been rewritten using the completing-the-square method. Is the vertex for each function a minimum or a maximum? Explain your reasoning for each function.

    Look at \(a\). If it has a negative sign, then the vertex is the maximum of the function.|dw:1439940999158:dw|
