How do you find the vertices?

Find the x coordinate of the vertex directly. When the equation of your parabola can be written as y = ax^2 + bx + c, the x of the vertex can be found using the formula x = -b / 2a. Simply plug the a and b values from your equation into this formula to find x. Plug this value into the original equation.

Are vertices and sides the same thing?

Cones, spheres, and cylinders do not have any edges because they do not have any flat sides. The place where two or more edges meet is called a vertex. A vertex is like a corner. If you have more than one vertex they are called vertices.
