Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you don't have a vertical shift, so ignore the k = 0. Plug in the numbers for a and h.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y=x^2 experience a shift left by 2 units, then a horizontal shrink of factor 1/2 then a shift down 5 units my answer : y=(x1/2)^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0horizontal shrinks/stretches are multiplied by the x from the inside. \[y=a(bxh)^2+k\] Use that as your basic formula. a, h, and k are explained above. \(b\) is the horizontal shrink/stretch factor. The "default" numbers for a and b are 1, and for h and k it's 0. In your problem you have shift left, so h = 2 horizontal shrink, so b = 1/2 vertical shift down, so k = 5. They don't say anything about vertical stretch/shrink, so leave it as 1. \[y=\left( \frac{ 1 }{ 2 }x+2 \right)^25\]
