y = -x^2 + 12x - 4

 

We need to complete the square, NSS

 

Factor out the negative

 

y = - ( x^2 - 12x + 4)

 

Take 1/2 of -12  = -6   square it  = 36....add it and subtract it inside the parentheses

 

y = - (x^2 - 12x + 36 + 4 - 36)     factor the first three terms, simplify the rest

 

y = - [  ( x - 6)^2  - 32 ]      apply the negative back across the terms

 

y =  - (x - 6)^2  + 32

 

In the form, y = a (x - h)^2 + k   the vertex is (h, k)  =  ( 6 , 32 )
