please help been stuck forever medal and fan For f(x) = x2 and g(x) = (x − 4)2, in which direction and by how many units should f(x) be shifted to obtain g(x)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well. from the template, is the only value added notice, the difference from the "parent" function f(x) to g(x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so it has a horizontal shift, of 4 units the 4 is negative, meaning the horizontal shift is to the right http://fooplot.com/#W3sidHlwZSI6MCwiZXEiOiJ4XjIiLCJjb2xvciI6IiMzQjE3RUQifSx7InR5cGUiOjAsImVxIjoiKHgtNCleMiIsImNvbG9yIjoiI0VEMEUwRSJ9LHsidHlwZSI6MTAwMH1d
