Step by Step Solution

Step 1. Write down the given information.

The given equation isy=x2-4x+1.

Step 2. Calculation.

The given equation y=x2-4x+1 is converted to y=ax-h2+kform as:

y=x24x+1=x24x+1+2222....Add and subtractsquare of 22=x24x+22+122=x223

Here a=1,h=2 and k=-3.

Step 3. Conclusion.

The required form of the given equation isy=x-22-3 where a=1,h=2 and k=-3.
