If the graph of the function is summetric about x=r-1, then the vertex is located at that line. (And vertex is a minimum if the parabola opens up.) And f(r-1)=(r-1)²-4t(r-1)+r f(r-1)=(r²-2r+1)-4tr-4t+r f(r-1)=r²-r+1-4tr-4t So vertex is ( r-1, r²-r+1-4tr-4t) \(\large\color{black}{ \displaystyle f(x)=x^2 -4tx+r }\) \(\large\color{black}{ \displaystyle f(x)=x^2 -4tx+r+\left(\frac{4t}{2}\right)^2-\left(\frac{4t}{2}\right)^2 }\) \(\large\color{black}{ \displaystyle f(x)=x^2 -4tx+\left(\frac{4t}{2}\right)^2+r-\left(\frac{4t}{2}\right)^2 }\) \(\large\color{black}{ \displaystyle f(x)=x^2 -4tx+\left(2t \right)^2+r-\left(2t\right)^2 }\) \(\large\color{black}{ \displaystyle f(x)=\left(x -2t\right)^2+r-4t^2 }\) And according to completing the square, the vertex is: (2t, r-4t²)

So, you can tell that: \(\large\color{black}{ \displaystyle r-1=2t }\) \(\large\color{black}{ \displaystyle r^2-r+1-4tr-4t=r-4t^2 }\)

that was based on the vertex.... Now, just solve the system.
