I need help solving this problem, can anyone do a step by step guide on how to do this?
1) Use the graph of the parent function to describe the graph of the related function.
F(X) = X^2 --> F(X) = 1/3 (X-1)^2 - 2
describe it, as in words?
the -1 shifts the parent function 1 horizontally, 1 unit to the right.
the 1/3 shrinks this shifted function by a factor of 3
finally, the -2 shifts this function vertically down 2 units
