Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[f(x)=\sqrt x\] Where do you see a k

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think the point is that you are asking what effect a certain k value will have on the graph and no one has any idea because there is no k in the equation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Is this the form we're suppose to use perhaps? \[\large f(x)=\sqrt{xh}+k\] Which would shift the vertex of the parabola to \(\large (h,k)\).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Blah not parabola, but the idea still holds. It would shift the..... base point? or whatever.. of the root over to \(\large (h,k)\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The K is shifting the function UP or DOWN. Since it's negative, it will shift it downward. Yah... something like that _
