Graph the quadratic functions y = 2x^2 and y = 2x^2 + 4 on a separate piece of paper. Using those graphs, compare and contrast the shape and position of the graphs.
I know that since both functions are quadratic functions, they will both have a parabola shape.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, so y = 2x^2 will be a parabola opening downward with a scale factor of two. While y = 2x^2 + 4 will have a parabola opening downward with a scale factor of two, raised four units?
