Refer to the explanation.

#### Explanation:

First, let's look at the transformations of this equation.

When something is with the

However, when something is **"outside"** the

Here is the graph (should be arrows at each end, just doesn't show):

As you can see, there is a point, or the vertex, is at

When the coefficient of a quadratic equation is **positive** , (ex: **up** .

When the coefficient is **negative**, (ex: **down** .

Our coefficient is just
