Background Information
The Gateshead Millenium Bridge was built across the Tyne River in England. The bridge was designed by Wilkinson Eyre Architects and engineered by Gifford. The bridge is two curves, one forming the deck and the other supporting it, spanning between two islands running parallel to the quaysides. It is a pedestrian and cyclist bridge. It uses a tilting mechanism that allows ships to pass through. Due to this feature and it's shape the bridge is often called the "Winking Eye Bridge".
Vertex Form into Standard Form
f(x)=-9/845 (x-65)^2+45
Plug in the a value and the vertex.
f(x)= -9/845 (x-65)(x-65)+45
Factor the (x-65)^2 into two binomials
f(x)=-9/845 (x^2-130x+4225)+45

f(x)=-9/845 (x〗^2)-9/845 (-130x)-9/845 (4225)+45
Distribute a.
f(x)=-9/845 x^2+ 18/13x +0
Simplify & group like terms. The equation is now in standard form f(x)=ax^2+bx+c.
Vertex Form
Vertex Form: f(x)=a〖(x-h)〗^2+k
Vertex (65, 45)
f(x)= a〖(x-65)〗^2+45
0=a(4225)+45
-45= a(4225)
-45/4225=a
-8/(845 )=a
Solve for a value.

Maximum
The parabala is faced downward and the a value is negative therefore it will have a maximum. The maximum is the vertex (65,45). It is the (h,k) values in the vertex form.
