    state the direction and the # of in which the graph of each function is translatedfrom the graph of f(x) = x squared

    x^2 normally rests on the x-axis, but this one is moved up by 8 units

    since the 1st cooeficient is positive, it open up

    would it be wide or narrow

    If we let g(x) = \(x^2\) and f(x) = \(x^2+8\). We can see that f(x) will always be 8 units higher on the y axis than g(x) is. Thus f(x) is a translation of the graph of \(x^2\) up 8 units.

    it is neither wider nor narrower than x^2, since there is no number other than a 1 infront of the x^2 part.

    larger than one tends to make the slope steeper... and narrows the graph a fraction of a slope tends to flatten the slope and widen the graph

    what if there is no y intercept like f(x) = 2x squared

    the y intercept is there...its just zero :)

    y intercept just means tha the line of the graph gets intercepted, cuahgt by, crosses over, the y axis at a certain point. another name for the y axis is x=0. so whenever x=o you can find the y intercept

    y = 2(0)^2...the y int = 0

    y = (0)^2 + 8 the y int = 8

    so if x=o there is no direction?

    you have to define what you mean by "direction"

    like on the first problem u found out the the graph is going 8 units

    y = (x + "moves it side to side")^2 + "moves it up or down"

    you understand that little "equation" I made?

    i think so like if it were to be f(x)=2x sqaured the y will be a zero? so that will mean it has no direction?

    correct as far as I am understaning your choice for "direction".. it simply means that the graph itself hasnt moved anywhere....but that "2" there means that the graph did get steeper...narrower

    ok one more question how would u graph all of this usin y=mx+b or no

    id go with no,.... y = mx +b makes a line...not a curve y = Mx^2 + b makes a curve since it has a "2" on the x. starts to bend the line
