# How do you find the axis of symmetry, graph and find the maximum or minimum value of the function y-5=-(x+2)^2?

$x = - 2$ the axis of symmetry
Maximum value of $y = 5$ when $x = - 2$

#### Explanation:

$x = - 2$ is the axis of symmetry
Kindly see the graph

graph{(y+(x+2)^2-5)(y-10000000x-2*10000000)=0[-10,10,-5,8]}

Have a nice day from the Philippines !
