The transformations A,B and C are as follows:

A: A translation of 1 unit in the negative y direction

B: A stretching parallel to the y-axis (with x-axis invariant) with a scale factor of 2

C: A reflection about the x-axis

A curve undergoes in succession, the above transformations A,B and C and the equation of the resulting curve is y = -2(x^2) -6. Determine the equation of the curve before the transformations were effected. *[Is it possible to view the equation of the resulting curve as y= -2 (x^2 -3)? But I think this will give a different original equation from if I use the given resulting equation??]*
