Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so, we can tell if the graph of that function is going to be shifted or "flipped" just by looking at the function shift: Y=3x^2 + 6 this shows that this graph was moved 6 units to the right. "flip" : when we mean "flip" we refer to when the graph is reflected across the axis, as if a mirror reflection. one basic way we can tell this is if the coefficient is negated. Y=3x^2
