# What are the coordinates of the vertex of the parabola whose equation is #y = 3(x - 2)^2 + 5#?

##### 2 Answers

The answer is:

There are two ways.

**First**:

we can remember the equation of the parabola, given the vertex

So:

**Second**:

we can make the counts:

and, remembering that

Vertex is

**Method**

Use the form:

This parabola has vertex at

And its major axis is along the

In our case we have,

So, the vertex is

**Worthy of note**

When the equation is of the form:

The vertex is at
