How do you find the axis of symmetry and vertex point of the function: #y= -4x^2+24x+6#?
Axis of symmetry formula
While there are several ways to find the axis of symmetry, the simplest method here is probably to just the formula,
Where we get the
Substituting your formula into the equation, we can see that:
So, to determine the axis of symmetry:
The axis of symmetry is the x value of the vertex point. Knowing this, we simply substitute
So, the vertex point will be at
