#### Explanation:

The equation of a parabola in

#color(blue)"vertex form"# is.

#color(red)(bar(ul(|color(white)(2/2)color(black)(y=a(x-h)^2+k)color(white)(2/2)|)))#

where (h ,k) are the coordinates of the vertex and a, is a constant.

#"For " y=(x-8)^2+48#

#a=1,h=8" and " k=48#

#rArr"vertex "=(8,48)#

graph{(x-8)^2+48 [-160, 160, -80, 80]}
