    This question is doing my head in, and I keep getting answer choice E which is incorrect. I am getting the wrong function. Would apprecitate any advice.

    Thanks.

    I'm trying to self teach C3 over the summer so might be wrong, but I don't understand how it could be E?
    If it was E the minimum point would be (-4,3) but clearly we have a positive x-coordinate? So it can't be that
    I got C after the process of elimination

    My reasoning:
    It can't be A because it would cross the y-axis at (0,-1) which it doesn't look like it does
    Not B as that would just be a parabola shifted 11 units
    Not D as you would have a negative x coordinate for minimum but it looks positive
    Not E because it has a negative x coordinate and it doesn't seem to be shifted 3 units up

    So C

    See I ruled out A and B because choices C,D and E look more similar hence little difference will give the points.

    The thing is I don't get is the equation is in terms of x and not y, does this affect anything. The inverse would mean that the circled point would be in either of the left quadrants so I assumed that from that it would be D or E - this is obviously wrong.

    The question says that the graph represesnts the function f(x) and so surely the inverse cannot be the same as f(x) - perhaps this is my mistake.

    I'm more concerned about getting these questions right for the test

    Not 'dissing' it, no.

    Just questioning why we get taught this stuff we're never going to use
