Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It seems that changing the value of h has all kinds of change effects on the shape of the parabola, if you look at @UnkleRhaukus' drawings ;) or has it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3The value of h does NOT change the shape of the parabola, it merely translates it left and right.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if k is + it moves it up, if k is  it moves it down if h is + it moves it left, if h is  it moves it right if a is negative, you will have a reflection about the x axis

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Actually, precal, is h is + it moves right, but in the equation you write x  h. The sign of h doesn't change. Just sayin'
