# What is the vertex of the parabola y=(x-8)^2+7?

Mar 1, 2016

(8,7)

#### Explanation:

The standard form of a parabola in vertex form is.

$y = a {\left(x - h\right)}^{2} + k \text{ where (h,k) are the coords of vertex }$

the equation : $y = {\left(x - 8\right)}^{2} + 7 \text{ is in this form }$

and by comparison vertex (h,k) = (8,7)

here is the graph of the parabola,showing the vertex.
