Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1from \(y =\sqrt{x}\), we have \(x =y^2\) and the vertex is (0,0) , the graph is dw:1437603450677:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now, the vertex form is \(x =a (yk)^2+h \) , from the given one, we have a =1, h, k are given, just plug in!!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Remember, if y = x^2 , then the vertex form is y = a(xh)^2 +k, but this problem gives us x =y^2, hence the location of h, k on vertex form are exchanged.
