The quadratic equation y=-(x+6)2+13 is given.

Identify the coordinates of the vertex.

(  ,  )

What is the maximum value?

The equation y=-(x+6)2+13 is given in vertex form, y=a(xh)2+k.

So the vertex is ( - 6, 13 ) since h=6 and k=13.

Since a is negative, the function opens downward and would therefore have a maximum . The maximum value is 13.

y=-(x+6)2+13   ...since this is in the form, y = a(x - h)2 + k, the vertex is at (h, k) i.e, (-6,13)

And the minus sign out front means that this parobola turns "downward," .....so, the vertex is always the maximum value whenever that's the case...
