f(x) = x2
g(x) = x2 + 8x + 16
In which direction and by how many units should f(x) be shifted to obtain g(x)?
Left by 4 units
Right by 4 units
Left by 8 units
Right by 8 units

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think it shifts the right by 4 units. (ab)^2=a^22ab+b^2 x^2  8x + 16 (same with a=x and b=4) x^2  8x + 16= (x4)^2 So the shift from x^2 is by 4 units.
