Axis of symmetry is x=2, minimum value -4, maximum value #oo#


All the required information can be read from the given equation it self. Given quadratic expression represents a vertical parabola opening up with its vertex at (2,-4), the axis of symmetry being x=2, The minimum value would be at its vertex , x=2. It would be -4 and the maximum value would be #oo#
