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)?
Left 4 units
Up 4 units
Right 4 units
Down 4 units

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for a function \[f(x)\] We have the following ways of how the graph moves \[f(x+a)\] Moves the graph LEFT by a units \[f(xa)\] moves the graph RIGHT by a units \[f(x)+a\] moves the graph UP by a units \[f(x)a\] moves the graph DOWN by a units, so what do you think?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you think about it as a parabolic function in vertex form, \(y=a(xh)^2+k\) You can determine that your vertex is at \((4~,~0)\) whereas the vertex of the parent function is \((0~,~0)\). Comparing the two vertexes, you can tell which way your graph has moved, what is the change from \(4\rightarrow 0=~?\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No, @Nishant_Garg gave you the different variations of HOW the graph would move in certain situations.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You can also compare the vertices.. and notice how theyve changed.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What @Nishant_Garg said is still true, we only have to read with care. This is what he wrote, with line spacings rearranged. for a function f(x) We have the following ways of how the graph moves f(x+a) Moves the graph LEFT by a units f(x−a) moves the graph RIGHT by a units f(x)+a moves the graph UP by a units f(x)−a moves the graph DOWN by a units, so what do you think?
