# What is the vertex form of y=x^2-12x+2 ?

$y = {\left(x - 6\right)}^{2} - 34$
Use $\frac{b}{2}$ to complete the square:
$y = {\left(x - 6\right)}^{2} - 36 + 2 = {\left(x - 6\right)}^{2} - 34$
$y = {\left(x - 6\right)}^{2} - 34$ is the vertex form of the equation
The vertex is $\left(6 , - 34\right)$
