##### 1 Answer

They are all at

#### Explanation:

**Finding the vertex:**

Use the formula

Here,

Thus, the vertex is located at

**Finding the X-intercept:**

Plug in

Then plug in

**Finding the Y-intercept:**

This is very similar to finding the X-intercept, in that we now plug in

**Alternative method:** Graph the parabola and look at the vertex and intercepts.
