# How do you sketch the graph of #y=(x-8)^2# and describe the transformation?

##### 1 Answer

Draw

#### Explanation:

The easiest way we can do is to graph it and describe what changes were made from the parent function,

This is a little easier because the equation given is in vertex form.

There is only thing changed:

The

Thus,

Everything else stayed the same:

Because everything stayed the same, in terms of drawing, just draw the parabola,

Transformed function:

graph{(x-8)^2 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

Parent function:

graph{x^2 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

Hope this helps :)
