since the coefficient of x^2 is positive, we know the parabola opens upward, so it minimum.
The vertex of the parabola is at x = 1, so plug that in to get y.
Or, complete the square:
y = x^2+2x+1  8
y = (x+1)^2  8
y+8 = (x+1)^2
Now you can just read off the coordinates.

I'm having some troubles with these. Thanks in advance. If a>0 find the minimum value. If a<0 find the maximum value. 1. y=x²+2x+5 2. y=2x²3x+4 These are functions for parabolas, so f(x)=ax²+bx+c when a does not equal 0 …
