**Reiny**, Wednesday, May 2, 2012 at 10:24pmcomplete the square

y = 5(x^2 - 8x + ....) + 78

= 5(x^2 - 8x + 16 - 16) + 78

= 5( (x-4)^2 - 16) + 78

= 5(x-4)^2 - 80 + 78

= 5(x-4)^2 - 2

take over ....

**Reiny**, Wednesday, May 2, 2012 at 11:10pmWe could write our answer in the form

y+2 = 5(x-4)^2

take a look at
