    okay, so we have \[x ^{2}\] and \[x ^{2}-10x+25\]

    since both expressions are squared, we can square root both of them

    well we already have x and x-5, because we square rooted, and you want him to leave it as squared, thats totally fine and you can help him

    if we want to move the graph of that function f(x) to right some units away i will use b units here we just do the following \(f(x-b)=(x-b)^2\) that is b units to the right away ffrom f(x) let's give this new function a name h(x) so that \(h(x)=f(x-b)=(x-b)^2\)

    i only i explained one thing; that is shift a curve x^2 to right by a b units to get (x-b)^2

  38. xapproachesinfinity

    so basically to get from f(x)=x^2 to g(x)=(x-5)^2 we need to shift f(x) 5 units to the right

    if you want the reason just think is there any number that cause a function of the sort f(x)=ax^2+bx+c does not exist i mean is there a point where that graph has discontinuity
