Thank you can you also show me the transalations involved with transforming y = x^2 to y = 9x^2 -6x

The vertex of is at

The vertex of is at . A translation p units in the negative x direction and q units in the positive y.

If you complete the square for , you will have it in the above, vertex, form and will therefore know the transformations involved.

Can you do that?
