(8,7)

#### Explanation:

The standard form of a parabola in vertex form is.

#y =a (x-h)^2 + k " where (h,k) are the coords of vertex "# the equation :

#y = (x-8)^2 + 7 " is in this form "# and by comparison vertex (h,k) = (8,7)

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

graph{(x-8)^2+7 [-22.2, 22.18, -11.1, 11.1]}
