Consider the parabola of the form $y=ax^2+bx+c$y=ax2+bx+c, where $a\ne0$a0

Fill in the gaps to make the statement true.

The $x$x-coordinate of the vertex of the parabola occurs at $x=\editable{}$x=. The $y$y-coordinate of the vertex is found by substituting $x=\editable{}$x= into the parabola's equation and evaluating the function at this value of $x$x.
