identify the vertex, axis of symmetry and the dirction of opening for y=(x6)^25

vertex(6,5)
Direction is opening down(maximum)
I don't know the axis of symmetry...but I hope this helped:) 
Vertex at x = 6, y = 5. That is the largest possible value of y along the curve.
Axis of symmetry is x = 6 vertical line.
Direction of the parabola's opening is down 
Oh wait for the axis of symmetry put the vertex form to standard form and then do
b/2a
For example:
x^2+6x+13 A=1 B=6 C=13
Axis of Symmetry equation x=b/2a
x=6/2(1)
x=3 
Sarah,
(x6)^2 is the same both sides of x = 6. For this problem you do not need
[b +/ sqrt(b^24ac) / 2a 
ok well sorry:P
