This is the equation for a parabola that opens horizontally instead of vertically so the standard formulae can be used.

#### Explanation:

This is the equation for a parabola that opens horizontally instead of vertically. First expand the expression to get it into standard parabola form.

The vertex is the minimum value of the expression so is

The y intercept (

The x intercept (
