Help with what?
Sorry, I'm not too good with graphs and I don't want to give you the wrong answer. Good luck though. :)
What's outside the () moves the graph up if + and down if -. So it's a move down 3 units. That eliminates a and c. What's inside the () moves the graph left if + and right if -. So it's a move 3 units right. There's no change of sign, so there's no reflection. The answer is b.
|dw:1450334369261:dw| notice a horizontal shift
|dw:1450334428382:dw| then a vertical translation down
by 3 units
You should be able to figure out how it works from the drawings
@crabbyoldgamer thanks, i didn't know whats outside the () moves it.
Or from the drawing and written explanation I provided.
thank you both
i have another graphing question if you guys wanna give it a shot
Go ahead ask it.
The only possible answers are a and c, because the other two have shifts that aren't in the equation. 1/3 multiplying the squared x means the graph increases 1/3 as fast as \[y=x^2\]. Visually that's c. You could also plug in x=2, see that y is 4/3 at that point, and determine that's represented by c.
When the coefficient of x squared is a fraction, the graph is fatter than \[y=x^2\]
Im thinking C
Yes, C. I explained how to determine the answer. Do you have notes that contain the info for translations?
http://www.purplemath.com/modules/fcntrans.htm contains the info. Print those pages. Put it in a folder. Or bookmark the URL. You should look it over three times a day until you have it memorized.
