Find the coordinates of the vertex and determine whether the graph opens up or down. y=x^2+x5

it opens up, because the (x^2) is positive. if it was negative, it would open down. The vertex is as follows:
to find the value of vertex, solve first for when x=o, then when y=0

Actually, note that
y=x^2+x5
so it opens downward
y = (x^2  x + 1/4)  5 + 1/4
= (x  1/2)^2  19/4
Now it should be clear where the vertex lies.
