Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we can rewrite your parabola as below: \[\Large y  4 = {\left( {x  2} \right)^2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now, if we make this change of variable: \[\Large \left\{ \begin{gathered} Y = y  4 \hfill \\ X = x  2 \hfill \\ \end{gathered} \right.\] where X, and Y are the new variables, then your parabola can be rewritten as below: \[\Large Y = {X^2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1as we can see the vertex has the subsequent coordinates: X=0 and Y=0, so we can write: \[\Large \left\{ \begin{gathered} Y = y  4 = 0 \hfill \\ X = x  2 = 0 \hfill \\ \end{gathered} \right.\] so, what are x and y? Furthermore, we note that the range of our parabola is given by the subsequent equation: \[\Large Y \geqslant 0\] from which we have: \[\Large y  4 \geqslant 0\] please solve that equation with respect to y, and you will find the requested range
