Transform the general equation y=ax^2+bx+c to vertex form
, where the vertex=(h,k).

Check:
:
Keep in mind that this was done by a human, when there are only letters and variables involved, I can only do but so much to check myself. I checked it against a real quadratic equation in which I could find the vertex. If I'm right the x value of the vertex would be
(that actually matches the known formula for the x value of the vertex in an equation written in standard form) and the y value would be
Good Luck!!!
Happy Calculating!!!
