# Thread: Transformations of a parabola.

1. ## Transformations of a parabola.

complete the square for the function. Then write a sequence of transformations that will produce its graph from the graph of y=x^2. Find the vertex and the line of symmetry of the parabola.

f(x)=x^2 - 4x+6

You need it in the from $(x-h)^2 + k$

$f(x) = (x-2)^2+2$

Can you continue from there?

3. no I dont get it

Have you been taught anything about transformations - in particular, translations ....?
