  1. let's complete the square on y = x^2 - 6x

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

    It is now in the form y = a(x-p)^2 + q
    the form you should find in your text or your notes

    All your question can now be answered without any further calculations.

    Create your own quadratic equation that has an axis of symmetry of x = −1 and whose graph opens down. Then find the vertex, domain, range, and x-intercepts. Show all work to receive full credit.
