$\text{vertex } = \left(0 , 0\right)$

#### Explanation:

$\text{express "x^2=y" in "color(blue)"standard form}$

$\text{divide both sides by } 8$

$\Rightarrow y = \frac{1}{8} {x}^{2}$

$y = a {x}^{2} \text{ is the standard form of a quadratic with }$
$\text{vertex at } \left(0 , 0\right)$
graph{x^2=1/8y [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
