if so then what do i do after that
i watch some videos on it, and this is what i came up with
$\displaystyle \displaystyle 2\left(x^2 + 4x +4 \)2(-4\right)+7 $
$\displaystyle \displaystyle 2\left(x^2 + 4x +4 \)-8\right+7 $ = $\displaystyle \displaystyle 2\left(x^2 + 4x +4 \)-1\right $
then i write it in standard form $\displaystyle \displaystyle f(x)= a\left(x- h\)^2+k\right $
isnt that correct?
