### Example 3 Understanding the Graph of Parabola For you to do.

For the figure, identify the axis of symmetry, the vertex, the minimum or maximum value and explain why it is a min or a max value, identify both points and their mirror image about the AOS.

The axis of symmetry is . Since the parabola is facing up the y-coordinate of the vertex represent a minimum value. The vertex is . The minimum value is .

Point A is and its corresponding point would be

Point B is and its corresponding point would be
