The x-coordinate of the vertex is given in the form -b/2a, while y-coordinate can be found by plugging the value of x-coordinate in the main equation and solving it for y. Speaking about the axis of symmetry, that is a straight vertical line given by the equation x= -b/2a.
That means the vertex is a point with coordinates (2,0) and the axis of symmetry is a line x = 2. We can plot that on the coordinate grid....
