164 Starting with the general equation of a quadratic function 2 () f x ax bx c = ++ , we can reduce it to the form 2 ( ) fx ax h k = −+ by completing the square, which allows as to obtain the general formula for the vertex of the parabola (,) hk . 2 f x ax bx c =+ + 2 2 24 bb fx ax c aa ⎛⎞ + ⎜⎟ ⎝⎠ Compare with 2 ( ) k =− + . Important Result: h = k = Important Note: kf h =
