I don't understand how to put it in vertex form.

Vertex form is     a (x-h)^2 +k = 0    where h,k is the vertex   so let's start with that h,k = 6,-1

 

a (x-6)^2 +  -1 = y     (this info was given in the question)

       and the point  7,-3 given as a solution to this equation ..now we can substitute this into the equation to find 'a'

a(7-6)^2 -1 = -3

a-1 = -3

a=-2  

so the equation becomes

 

-2(x-6)^2 -1 = y
