  1. y = 8(x^2+6x) - 3
    now just complete the square.
    y = 8(x^2+6x+9) - 3
    but wait. You just added 8*9, so subtract it off so things don't get changed.

    y = 8(x^2+6x+9) - 3 - 8*9
    y = 8(x+3)^2 - 75

    now it's easy to see that the vertex is at (-3,-75), and of course, it lies on the axis of symmetry.
