    solve x=t+4 for t then replace the t in y=t^2 and then done

    would it be y=x^2 - 16 ? @myininaya

    hmmm not correct but i think it is because you forgot a simple algebraic rule (and don't worry a lot of people forget it)

    (a-b)^2 doesn't meant a^2-b^2

    (a-b)^2 means (a-b)(a-b)

    so what am i saying is i'm pretty sure you got this far y=(x-4)^2 but you didn't expand the (x-4)^2 correctly that is all

    So the answer is actually x^2 - 8x + 16?
