#### Explanation:

Given:

Standard form of a parabola:

where #"vertex" = (h, k); "axis of symmetry": x = h"

and

The vertex can be found easily:

where the equation is in general form:

You can also do competing of the square to put the equation in standard form.

graph{x^2-5x+3 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
