# What is the vertex of the parabola y=(x-8)^2?

May 30, 2016

Vertex is at point (8,0).

#### Explanation:

The parabola equation is of the form

$y = a \left(x - h\right) + k$

The vertex is at point $\left(h , k\right)$

The given equation is

$y = {\left(x - 8\right)}^{2}$

So the vertex is at $\left(8 , 0\right)$
