Find the coordinates of the vertex of the graph of π of π₯ equals π₯ squared minus six π₯ minus four.
00:00:08.290 --> 00:00:13.640
State the value of the function at the vertex and determine whether it is a maximum or minimum.
00:00:14.740 --> 00:00:28.440
For any parabola, π of π₯ equals ππ₯ squared plus bπ₯ plus π and the vertex β, π can be found using β equals negative π over two π and π equals π of β.
00:00:29.020 --> 00:00:35.930
So if this is our function, π equals one, π equals negative six, and π equals negative four.
00:00:36.260 --> 00:00:41.640
So to find the vertex β, π, we will find β by negative π over two π.
00:00:42.330 --> 00:00:49.390
So here, we will multiply negative one times negative six over two times one, which is six over two, which is equal to three.
00:00:49.420 --> 00:00:50.670
So that is β.
00:00:51.370 --> 00:00:53.020
So now we need to find π.
00:00:53.300 --> 00:00:55.260
And π is equal to π of β.
00:00:55.260 --> 00:00:57.910
We have to plug in the value of β into our function.
00:00:58.350 --> 00:01:00.040
So itβs equal to π of three.
00:01:00.380 --> 00:01:02.770
So we will take our function and plug in three.
00:01:03.370 --> 00:01:05.090
And we get negative 13.
00:01:05.500 --> 00:01:07.850
So the vertex is three, negative 13.
00:01:08.260 --> 00:01:11.580
So now we have to decide if itβs a minimum or maximum value.
00:01:12.700 --> 00:01:18.190
Since π is a positive leading coefficient, our graph should open upward.
00:01:18.470 --> 00:01:22.540
So our vertex will be at the bottom which means it would be a minimum.
00:01:23.470 --> 00:01:26.770
Therefore, the vertex again is three, negative 13.
00:01:27.190 --> 00:01:30.550
The value of the function at the vertex is negative 13.
00:01:30.610 --> 00:01:32.210
And itβs a minimum value.
