    Maximum Value

    Hey so I'm a little confused on what to do with this problem as it asks for the maximum value. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    y = 2x^2 -4x + 4

    Either your equation is wrong (the coefficient of x^2 needs to be negative if there is to be a maximum value) or there is a typo and the question wants the minimum value.

    Well, I double checked it and that is the equation and asks for the maximum so would the answer just be unable to be defined

    It would be correct to say that y has no maximum value.
