f(x)=1/4(x+2)^2-4.
i) explain how the parabola that is the graph of f can be obtained from the graph of y=x^2 by using appropriate translations and scalings.
ii) find the x-intercepts and y-intercept of the parabola.
Hello, toplad!
We know the graph of
i) Explain how the graph of can be obtained from the graph of
by using appropriate translations and scalings.Code:| * | * | * | * * | * * | * --------*-------- |
The curve: is the previous graph moved 2 units to the left.Code:| * | * | * | * * | * * * --------*--+----- |
The curve: is the previous graph moved 4 units down.Code:| * | * | --*--------+-*-- * |* * * * | |
The curve "rises more slowly" . . . Hence, it is "wider".Code:* | * | * | * ----*-----------+-----*---- * | * * |* * | |
