    Try graphing.

    are you sure that 2 after the () is supposed to be there? non-standard form, that.

    ah.. a parabola then. Yeah, then do as khan said: graph that equation and compare it to the parent function, y = x^2

    How would I begin to graph it, do I have to distribute -2 into the parentheses?

    no, it is in "vertex form" everything you need is in the equation as is.

    y=a(x-h)^2 +k the 'a' is an "amplifier" and stretches the graph. (h,k) are the coordinates of the vertex.

    easiest way to see the translation is to compare the coordinates, (h,k) with the origin, (0,0)
