Can you please help me with the last part of this question...(Speechless)(Speechless)
the equation of a curve is y=ax^2 - 2bx +c where a,b and c are constants with a>0 .
a) Find in terms of a,b and c the coordinates of the vertex of the curve
b) Given that the vertex of the curve lies on the line y=x , find an expression for c in terms of a and b.
Show that in this case, whatever the value of b, c is greater than or equal to -1/4a
So what did you get for parts a) and b)?
For a) I completed the square and got the coordinated as

I am confused in the last part..
I don't get it why whatever the value of b, c should always be greater than or equal to -1/4a
I had an idea of making b=o and finding the value of c but that won't work i'll get 0
