find the axis of symmetry and vertex of the function. tell whether it goes upward or downward.
1. y=xsquared+9
2. y=2xsquared=7x21

to find the axis of symmetry you must use the formula x=b/2a which in (1. a=1 b=0 c=9)
1.x=b/2a = o/1(2) 0/2 =0 your axis of symmetry would be 0 and to find out if it goes upward or downward you must plug in more numbers to get more cordinates
