1. y= -2(2x-1)(x+4)
-y/2 = (2x^2 +7x -4 )
-y/4 = x^2 +7/2 x -2
-y/4 + 2 = x^2 +7/2 x
-y/4 + 2 + 49/16 = x^2 + 7/2 x + 49/16
-y/4 + 81/16 = (x+7/4)^2
-1/4 (y-81/4) = (x+7/4)^2
(-7/4, 81/4)

I have to find the vertex, axis of symmetry, and x intercepts of x^2-x+(5/4). I put it in standard form as -(x+-.5)^2+1.5. Thus, the vertex would be .5, 1.5. But the book's answer is 1/2, 1. How did they get this?
