Homework Help: Math

Posted by Lena on Wednesday, January 23, 2008 at 9:55pm.

When completing the square:
5x^2 + 10x - 20
5 ( x^2 + 2x) -20 = 0
5 ( x + 1)^2 -15 = 0

Did I do that right? If so I have another question. When it's in this form, -15 is the y-coordinate of the vertex and 2 the x coordinate of the vertex? If so isnt the x cooridinate of the vertex -2 because you flip the sign?
