**Reiny**, Thursday, August 27, 2009 at 12:08pmcomplete the square:

y=x2+6x-2

= x^2 + 6x**+ 9 - 9**-2

= (x+3)^2 - 11

so the vertex is (-3,-11)

or

for y = ax^2 + bx + c, the x value of the vertex is -b/(2a)

sub that back in the original equation to get the y of the vertex.

x of vertex = -6/2 = -3

y = (-3)^2 + 6(-3) - 2 = -11
