The axis of symmetry is

#### Explanation:

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).
