Describe the differences between the graph of y = –3(x + 7)2 – 10 and the standard position graph of y = x2.
move graph of y= x^2 7 units to the left parallel to x axis then 10 units down parallel to y axis then a stretch factor 3 parallel to y axis finally invert parallel to y axis
When you graph a parabola. the number outside of your () is opposite. so move your starting point to the left 7. then move down 10 (due to the negative 10) and your parabola will be opening down (down 3, over one) The difference would be that it is in the middle of graph, while the first is not.
when comparing the graphs of y=x and y x what is a difference in the graphs
