What is the axis of symmetry and vertex for the graph #y=x^2+8x+12#?
The axis of symmetry is
We can find the axis of symmetry in the form of a line,
To find the value of line
In our given graph,
After inserting values:
The equation for our axis of symmetry is
To find the vertex, we must convert our parabola's equation to vertex form:
Our vertex is h,k, and thus, (-4,-4).
