$y = 2x^{2} + 3$ The standard form for a quadratic equation is $y = ax^{2} + bx + c$ So a= 2, b= 0, and c= 3 Axis of symmetry: The formula for axis of symmetry is $x= \frac{-b}{2a}$ $x= \frac{-0}{2(2)}$ x=0 Vertex: Plug in the x value of the axis of symmetry to find the y value of the vertex. $y = 2x^{2} + 3$ $y = 2(0)^{2} + 3$ y= 0 + 3 y= 3 The vertex is (0,3)
