# How do you write the Vertex form equation of the parabola #y=x^2-6x+5#?

##### 1 Answer

Please see the explanation.

#### Explanation:

Given

The vertex form of a parabola of this type is:

where

The first step is to add 0 to equation [1] in the form

If we expand the square in equation [2],

Solve for h:

Substitute

Substitute 3 for every h:

Simplify the constant terms:

This is the vertex form.
