Vertex is (2,

#### Explanation:

The equation has the form

This represents the parabola with vertex at (2,

The axis of the parabola is the line x = 2, from the vertex in the positive direction of the y-axis.

To get intercept on the x-axis, put y = 0 in the equation and find x.

For the y-intercept put xo 0.,
