min/max point
minimum or maximum
f(x)=2x^2+8x2
a=2
x=(b)/(2a)=(8)/(2)(2)=4
x=4
y=2(4)^2+8(4)2
2(16)322
32322
y=2
(4,2)
axis of symmetry is x=4
range[2,oo]
minimum value 2

bobpursley,
You have the correct min.

Isn't this the same question as this one?

Err exactly the same. The min is wrong >.<. The minimum value occurs at x = 2 but the minimum value is not 2. 
John 
Reiny,
Your parabola in standard form is
y = 2(x+2)^2  10 , (check it by expanding this)
so you have a parabola opening upwards with vertex at (2,10)
Minimum value is 10, when x=2
axis of symmetry is x=2
domain: any real number for x
range: y ≥ 10, y any real number
