If you plot this, then you'll answer this question yourself. :)

okay i plotted the parabola where would the translation be? thats what I'm confused about..

Translation simply means movement. In other words, what's the difference between \(y=x^2\) and \((x4)^22\)? In this case, both horizontal and vertical translations are going on. How much does the graph move to the left/right? How much does it move up/down?

okay but from the vertex? What's the starting point?? I'm so confused...

It doesn't matter what the starting point is because the system is the twodimensional euclidean plane; for simplicity, you could pick the vertex.

Well it moves and up and to the left and right..so the starting point or point you're moving from would determine the answer??

Think of the graph as a whole, not a single point in it. How is \(y=x^2\) different from \(y=(x4)^22\)? Here, I will draw it for you:dw:1355525517186:dw
