#### Explanation:

From the given: Vertex (-8, 5) and passing thru (2, 27), the parabola opens upward. The reason is that the vertex is lower than the given point.

By the vertex form , we can solve for the value of

Go back to the vertex form

graph{(x--8)^2=(50/11)(y-5)[-50,50,-25,25]}

God bless....I hope the explanation is useful.
