Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1are you sure that 2 after the () is supposed to be there? nonstandard form, that.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ah.. a parabola then. Yeah, then do as khan said: graph that equation and compare it to the parent function, y = x^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How would I begin to graph it, do I have to distribute 2 into the parentheses?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no, it is in "vertex form" everything you need is in the equation as is.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1y=a(xh)^2 +k the 'a' is an "amplifier" and stretches the graph. (h,k) are the coordinates of the vertex.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1easiest way to see the translation is to compare the coordinates, (h,k) with the origin, (0,0)
