Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1quadratic equation in vertex form \[ y=a(xh)^2+k\] where k = horizontal shift h=vertical shift (hint: inside the parentheses )

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2(x+h) , this h is adding to x, right? hence the graph moves along xaxis, that is it moves to the right/ left

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2if f(x) + k, that is the whole graph + k. It means the whole graph (y) moves along y axis. Got what I meant?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\(\huge\rm y=a(x\color{reD}{h})^2+\color{blue}{k}\) \(h\ne 0\) means horizontal shift, \(k\ne 0\) means vertical shift, example: dw:1439822841978:dw
