The question is:

What is the equation of the axis of symmetry of the parabola given by the equation y=6(x+1)(x-5)?

Now, I know this quadratic equation is in intercept form, and I know that the formula for finding the axis of symmetry for this is (p+q)/2

Which means that it's (1-5)/2

then -4/2

Which equals -2. But it says that the correct answer is 2, not -2.

I'm confused, is my formula wrong? Please help.
