# How do you write the equation in vertex form #y=x^2-6x+11#?

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

A quadratic equation, for reference, is:

Vertex form of a quadratic:

where the vertex is

Here we can convert

(to find a perfect square, we **halve** the coefficient of **square** the answer)

Here, we halved

When we add

Here is a perfect square. All we need to do is **halve** the coefficient, add it with

To finish it in the vertex form:

The vertex is

Thus, solved.
