Tutors, please sign in to answer this question.

1 Answer

I assume the equation is -5(x-2)2 - 1 = y
 
Let's add one to both sides:
 
-5(x-2)2 = y + 1
 
This is the equation of a parabola in "vertex" form:
 
a(x-h)2 = (y-k)
 
a)  The Vertex is located at the point (h,k)
 
b)  The line of symmetry is y = h
 
c)  The parabola opens upward if a>0, down if a<0
