# What is the vertex form of y=x^2+10+24 ?

Dec 18, 2015

I am assuming that the vertex form is the vertex form of the equation

#### Explanation:

The general equation for vertex form is: -
$a {\left(x - h\right)}^{2} + k$

Therefore, we use complete the square method to find the equation in its vertex form.

$= \left({x}^{2} + 10 + 25\right) - 25 + 24$
$f \left(x\right) = {\left(x + 5\right)}^{2} - 1$

Thus, the equation in vertex form is $f \left(x\right) = {\left(x + 5\right)}^{2} - 1$
