So, list the transformations you need to apply to y=x^2 to graph the relation. Then sketch the graph. a) y= 1/2(x-1)^2+2 I just started my new semester, and i forgot how to solve these equations !

The 1/2 means that the y values will get halved. So in when x =1 y = 1 but in when x=1 , y = 0.5 The (x-1)^2 means that your parabola shifts 1 unit to the right The +2 means that it moves up 2 unites. The blue parabola is the transformed one and the red parabola is x^2 .
