# How do you graph #y= (x-4)^2 +3 #?

##### 1 Answer

Determine the vertex and several points, preferably on mirror images of the parabola. Plot points and sketch a curve through the points. Do not connect the dots.

#### Explanation:

The equation is in vertex form,

Determine several points on the parabola, substituting both positive and negative numbers for

Plot the vertex and the points that you determined. Sketch a parabola (curve) through the points with the vertex as the minimum point. Do not connect the dots.
