# What is the vertex, axis of symmetry, the maximum or minimum value, and the range of parabola f(x)=-2(x-2)^2-4?

Jun 7, 2015

The vertex is the point (2, -4)

Axis of symmetry: x = 2

Since a = -2 is negative, the parabola opens downward, there is a max.

max value: -4

Range of parabola: (-4, -infinity)
