I think you messed up when trying to find the axis of symmetry. There's a small calculation error there and it seems to have thrown off all your answers. However, your work overall is correct.

roro,
when you used the calculator to find (8)/(2)(2) you did not consider the order of operations you must multiply 2 by 2 before you divide 8 by the answer, otherwise your method is correct

John,
My range changes to 10 and the axis is x=2, and min value is 10?
