#1**+1 **

When written in vertex form, **h= -1.5**.

Hope this helps!

**Edit: **

Step 1: Group the first 2 terms together, separating them from the constant term.

Step 2: Factor out leading coefficient, for completing the square to work, the coefficient of x^2 must be 1.

Step 3: Complete the square, Take half of x coefficient and square it. Notice to keep equation balanced you must add this number and subtract it making the net effect zero.

Step 4: Distribute and add constants.

So x-(-1.5) is the "h" you're looking for.

Thanks for the edit helpmeeeee.

**Remember, partial answers and hints are always good. :)**

....So long as they come from someone who actually knows what they are talking about.

You have already earned credibility. I would assume you know how to answer in full if you wanted to.

I am referring to future answers, not this one.
