The formula for the axis of symmetry is given as

in the quadratic equation

In this equation, the b value is -11 and the a value is 6

Thus, the axis of symmetry is

Now we found the horizontal line, we must find the place where this horizontal like meets the equation because that is where the vertex is.

Well, to find that, we just plug in

Changing the denominator so that all parts have the same one

So, our vertex is
