#### Explanation:

The Standard Form for writing a polynomial is to put the terms with the highest degree first (what index it is raised to).

First, let's expand out the brackets:

Simplify it, and make sure the terms are descending by their degree and you get

Hope this helped; let me know if I can do anything else:)

#### Explanation:

The standard form of the quadratic equation is

However, you have been given an equation in vertex form

First, factor out the

Next, multiply the -5 through the factored expression.

Finally, add the last two terms
