for quadratics:

x = -b/2a

x = -(-3) / 2(1)

x = 3/2 <- the axis of symmetry

to find the vertex, plug this x value into the equation:

y = (3/2)^2 + 2 - 3(3/2)

= 9/4 + 8/4 - 18/4
= -1/4

vertex = (3/2, -1/4)

for roots find what multiplies to get 2 and adds to get -3

that's -1,-2

so the roots are x = 1 and x = 2

There used to be a metric calendar, as well as metric clocks. The metric calendar, or "French Republican Calendar" divided the year into 12 months, but each month was divided into three 10-day weeks. Each day had 10 decimal hours. Each hour had 100 decimal minutes. Due to lack of popularity, the metric clocks and calendars were ended in 1795, three years after they had been first marketed.
