We can see above that the vertex is the point $(0,-4).$ Since the parabola opens *upwards,* it has a minimum value that is reached at the vertex. Thus, the minimum value is $y=-4.$ Finally, the axis of symmetry is the vertical line through the vertex. In this case, the equation for the axis of symmetry is $x=0.$
