The graph below has the same shape as the graph of G(x) = x2, but it is shifted down three units and to the left two units. Complete its equation. Enter exponents using the caret (^); for example, enter x2 as x^2. Do not include "F(x) =" in your answer.

    You can attach the image to the problem directly rather than linking it.

    Ok, so the graph is the same as \(y = x^2\) But it's shifted down 3 units. So how will the y values of the graph relate to the y values of \(y=x^2\) for a particular value of x?

    If we call F(x) the y value of the function and G(x) = \(x^2\). What is F(x) in terms of G(x)?

    Is that what your graph shows? Here's a better question. If H(x) is just had a parabola that looked exactly like \(x^2\) but was shifted down 3 units. What would H(0) be?

    \(0^2 = 0,\) but our H(x) is shifted down 3 from this graph, so H(0) would be?

    What is \(G(x) = x^2 =?\) and what is our hypothetical H(x) ?

    No. If x=1, then \(G(x) = (1)^2 = 1\) And since H is still shifted down 3, we'd have H(x) = 1-3 = -2. So we can see that for any given value for x, H(x) = G(x) - 3

    You're doing fine, but I'm trying to take it one step at a time and lead you to the concepts that will allow you to solve these quickly and easily. I think part of the problem is that you imagine that you just aren't going to be able to understand and therefore try to just guess at a solution to get it over with.

    G(x) = x is just a line passing through the origin. When x = 0, G(x) = 0, when x = 1, G(x) = 1, and so on.

    Now lets say we have another function F(x) that is the same shape (a straight line with a slope of 1) but it's not going through the origin. It is shifted down 3 units. \(x = 0 \implies F(x) = ? \) \(x = 1 \implies F(x) = ? \)

    Deep breath. If G(0) = 0, and F(0) is G(0) but shifted down 3 units, wouldn't F(0) = 0 - 3 = -3?
