Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok so we have the parent function y = x^2 dw:1443826223302:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we know that "a vertical stretch of factor 2" is applied to this parent function what this does is basically make the graph twice as tall. In terms of the equation, we simply just multiply the x^2 by 2 dw:1443826284551:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1IF it were something like "vertical stretch by a factor of 9", then we'd have y = 9x^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1"shift right of 3 units" means we replace EVERY x with x3 dw:1443826400885:dw
