  • Algebra -

    for y=ax^2+bx+c, vertex is at x = -b/2a
    if you complete the square, and have

    (y-k) = a(x-h)^2 then
    the vertex is at (h,k)

    the axis of symmetry goes through the vertex.

    the sign of the x^2 term determines whether the vertex is a min or max.

    So, what do you come up with?
