How do you sketch the graph of #y=(x+2)^2# and describe the transformation?
Please read the explanation.
We are given the quadratic function:
For the family of quadratic functions,
the parent function is of the form
When graphing quadratic functions, there is a useful form called the vertex form:
Data table is given below:
(both for the parent function and the given function)
For the parent function,
For the given function,
Let us graph:
moves (shifts) the graph LEFT by 2 units.
Note on Transformation:
Hence we can observe that there is a horizontal translation.
Hope it helps.
