Hello,

first transcribe the equation of your function into the given general form:

Now you can describe the steps of transformation of the normal parabola:

1. shift 1 unit to the left because of (x+1)

2. compress the graph by the factor because the factor is smaller than 1

3. move down by

I've attached a diagram which contains these three steps. The order of transformation is: black - blue - green - red
