# What is the vertex of the parabola y=(x+16)^2+7?

Mar 29, 2016

$\left(- 16 , 7\right)$

#### Explanation:

The vertex form of a parabola is: $y = a {\left(x - h\right)}^{2} + k$
The vertex can be expressed by $\left(h , k\right)$

In the given equation: $y = {\left(x + 16\right)}^{2} + 7$
$h$ is equal to $- 16$
k is equal to $7$
$\left(h , k\right)$
$\left(- 16 , 7\right)$
