# How do you find the axis of symmetry and vertex point of the function: #f(x) = -x^2 + 10#?

##### 1 Answer

The axis of symmetry is

The vertex is

#### Explanation:

Substitute

**Axis of symmetry**

The axis of symmetry is an imaginary horizontal line that divides the parabola into two equal halves.

The formula for finding the axis of symmetry is

**The axis of symmetry is #x=0#.**

**Vertex**

The vertex is the maximum or minimum point on the parabola. In this case, because

The

To find the

**The vertex is #(0,10)#.**
