# How do you find x-intercepts, axis of symmetry, maximum or minimum point, and y-intercept for the equation #y = x^2+2x-3#?

##### 1 Answer

To find

That is: solve

The

Find

The

Find the vertex:

The vertex of

So the graph of

The axis of symmetry is the line:

Because

The minimum value of

I don't know what you've been taught to call the "minimum point", but I'll assume it has 2 coordinates, so the "minimum point" is the vertex.

I expect the "minimum point" to be
