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

For a general quadratic equation, y= ax^2 + bx + c, axis of symmetry is given by the the equation, x = -b/2a

here, in the given equation, a = -1, b = 4 and c = -6

Therefore, axis of symmetry is -

x = -4/(2*(-1))

or, x = 2

Axis of symmetry divides the graph of quadratic equation in exact halves.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions. Kindly best this answer if it has helped you.
