ashleyb 3 years ago describe differences between graph of y=-3/4(x-6)^2+4 and standard position graph of y=x^2

1. Nali

can u plz draw this so it can be seen better or at least use the equation button?

2. ashleyb

\[y=-3/4(x-6)^2+4 \]

3. ashleyb

\[y=x^2\]

4. Nali

so u mean -3/4 not -3 over 4(x-6)^2

5. ashleyb

correct

6. Nali

ok then...

7. ashleyb

can u help me?? plz??

8. Nali

the - in the beginning will makes the graph negative iwill write hte rest just give me afew minutes

9. Nali

the trick in doing this is to know that if it is a fraction in fromnt of the equation then the graph will widen it there is a whole number then it will shrink if there is number inside the parantheses wil x if it is negative then the graph will move that many units to the right if it is positive then the graph will move that many units to the left here is the solution to u r question but u should memorize those two hints when solving these types of quesitons >>> the 3/4 will widen the graph horizontally the -6 will moves the graph to the right 6 units and the +4 will move the graph up 4 units

i get it now...thankyou for your help
