Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0using vertex form, you can always plug in numbers to check.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if k is positive you should shift the f(x) some units above the xaxis if k is negative shift below the xaxis some units for horizontal you would be careful abt signs if h is negative shift the function some units to the Right side if h is positive shift the function some units to the left side
