##### 1 Answer

The axis of symmetry is

The minimum (vertex) is

#### Explanation:

The axis of symmetry:

Simplify.

The vertex is the maximum or minimum of the parabola.

If

If

In the current equation

With a standard equation, substitute the value for

Simplify.

The vertex is

graph{y=x^2-6x+2 [-16.02, 16.01, -8.01, 8.01]}
