    hint: look at the general form a(x-h)^2 + k

    the (h,k) tells us where the vertex is

    would it be down and to the left?

    but the x-2 means we 2 units to the right

    it's probably counterintuitive, but it's the opposite x-2 means 2 right x+2 means 2 left

    it's the opposite because of the x-h it's the opposite of whatever h is

    IF it were x+h then you'd be right

    okay, so the answer is down and to the right, or D, right?
