Help Me!!! Please
A video game producer is using the quadratic function f(x) = 4 – x2 to model the path of an arrow shot by a game player. The path of the arrow is shown in the graph below. The point (2, 3) represents the top of the castle wall. A graph of a parabola is shown. The xintercepts are at (2, 0) and (2, 0). The vertex is at (0, 4).If the player moves so that the arrow will clear the wall at the maximum height, what is the new function that the game producer would need to use? Use complete sentences and explain your work.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You need to shift the graph 2 to the right so it becomes x2, and 1 unit down, so you need to change from 4 to 3 for the y value.
