Problem Set 1 Question 1A-1 b)
By completing the square, use translation and change of scale to sketch:
y = 3x^2 + 6x +2
Here is the method I attempted, but with a different result than shown in the Solutions. Where am I going wrong?
y = 3x^2 + 6x +2
y - 2 = 3x^2 + 6x [move 2 to the left side]
y - 2 = 3(x^2 +2x) [factor out 3]
y - 2 +1 = 3(x^2 +2x +1) [complete the square]
y - 1 = 3(x +1)^2 [rearrange toward slope - intercept form]
y = 3(x+1)^2 +1 [add one to both sides]
Now, I have it in slope-intercept form but my answer is different from the Solution. Help?

you could have factored out a 3 from the begining
