HI..
In very basic terms, h and k are the distance of x axis and y axis from min/max point
\(y = (x - h)^2 + k\) and the minimum value is at (2,0)
so looking at the sketch we can say h is 2 and k is 0...
so the equation becomes \(y = (x - 2)^2 + 0\)
Now (-3, n) is also on the parabola, so substitute x as -3..
\(y =n= (-3 - 2)^2 + 0=(-5)^2=25\)
