Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x^2 would be a parabola when graphed, if you were to minus 1 to x^2, then the yintercept of the graph would shift down by 1 unit

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2great! so, the original equation is f(x) = x^2 the new equation is f(x1) = x^2  2x + 1 what CHANGED? what do f(x) and f(x1) have in common? what is different?
