##### 1 Answer

#### Answer:

#### Explanation:

Use the equation

The given vertex is

Plugging this into the equation above gives

To find the constant

Substitute

Some books and teachers call this the standard form; but most call it the vertex form. To find the "usual" standard form, square the binomial and simplify.
