Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Since this function is a parabola, the minimum value will be at the vertex

The x value of the vertex is found using -b/2a

= -2/2 = -1

Now we plug that into the function

g(-1) = -1^2 + 2(-1) + 2 = 1 - 2 + 2 = 1

Therefore, the function's minimum is 1

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
