can you quickly see if i'm right, because im not positive ive done it correctly...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

thnx

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The equation of a curve is [tex]y=f(x)[/tex], where [tex]f(x) = x^2 - 6x + 14[/tex].

Find the coordinates of the minimum point , [tex]M[/tex], of the curve

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I completed the square to get

[tex]y=(x-3)^2 + 5[/tex]

then i used my knowledge of transformation of function to work out the answer is [tex](3,5)[/tex]

however, im not sure i did it right, im pretty sure the y-coordinate is right, but the x-coordinate may be wrong...

can you help?
