Algebra II repost please check

I posted these a little while ago but this time I have answered them.
1. Does the graph of y = x – 3x2 + 5 have a maximum or minimum?
2. What is the vertex of the graph of y = 2(x  3)2 + 4?
3. Does the graph of y = 2(x  3)2+ 4 open up or down?
My answers: 1. I cannot answer. This is the one I need help with because I don't know how to tell if it has a maximum or minimum. It wasn't in my notes. 2. 1 3. it opens up.
Could someone check 2. &3 and help me with 1? Thanks

2 and three are wrong. On three, what happens to y as x gets large? On two, the axis of symettry is x=3. What is y when x is three?
1. factor it.
y= 3 (x^2 1/3 x + ?) + 5+?
now, the question mark is what it takes to make a perfect square, 1/2 of 1/3 squared, or 1/36)
y= 3(x1/6)^2 + 5 1/36
Now, it opens downward, so it has a maximum.
later on, in calculus, there are other methods to determine max/min.
