# How do you graph y=sqrtx +6 and how is it different from the parent function?

For graphing, you use different values of $x$ (preferably squares).
Say you take $x = 0 , 1 , 4 , 9 , \ldots$ your answers will be
$y = 0 + 6 = 6 , 1 + 6 = 7 , 2 + 6 = 8 , 3 + 6 = 9$, etc.
Since the parent function is $\sqrt{x}$, this function is translated $6$ up, or a translation of $\left(0 , 6\right)$
