# What is the vertex of x = –2(y– 3)^2 - 2?

Jun 24, 2016

$\text{Vertex } \to \left(x , y\right) = \left(- 2 , 3\right)$

#### Explanation:

This equation is in vertex form

You deal with this the same way as you would if the x was where the y is. The only difference instead of $x = \left(- 1\right) \times \left(- 3\right)$ you have

$y = \left(- 1\right) \times \left(- 3\right)$ where the -3 comes from ${\left(y - 3\right)}^{2}$

The value of $x$ you can read off directly as the constant -2

$\text{Vertex } \to \left(x , y\right) = \left(- 2 , 3\right)$
