# How do you find the axis of symmetry if only given points (-6,0) and (2,0)?

$x = - 2$ is the axis of symmetry.
Assuming that we have a parabola, the axis of symmetry is $x = \frac{{r}_{1} + {r}_{2}}{2}$ where ${r}_{1}$ and ${r}_{2}$ are the roots (when $y = 0$). Here, ${r}_{1} = - 6$, and ${r}_{2} = 2$, so the axis of symmetry is when
$x = \frac{- 6 + 2}{2} = - 2$.
