#### Explanation:

#"the equation of a parabola in "color(blue)"vertex form"# is.

#color(red)(bar(ul(|color(white)(2/2)color(black)(y=a(x-h)^2+k)color(white)(2/2)|)))#

#"where "(h,k)" are the coordinates of the vertex and a is"#

#"a multiplier"#

#y=x^2+6" is in this form"#

#"that is "y=(x-0)^2+6larrcolor(red)"in vertex form"#

#"with vertex "=(0,6)#
