The equation of a graph is: y = -x^2 + x + 2. I had to find the equation by looking at the graph. I have cross checked and found the equation is correct.
Problem: the graph of this parabola is moved 2 units to the left and 3 units up. Give the equation of the parabola in the new position, in simplified form, and also give the y-intercept.
Answer: By looking at the graph and shifting the points, I found the y-intercept to be 3. How will I write the new equation?
Take the easy example of
