Size:  453.6 KBI understand this topic fine but I literally don't understand what the homework is asking me to do because, for example, the one in the middle right with (-3,4), are those coordinates the minimum point or what it has been translated by? And are the brackets for the minimum point or vectors of the translation?

    The question appears to ask you to state in vector form ( ie. fill in the brackets ) the translation that would move the minimum point of y=x^2 to the coordinates shown. For the questions mostly top left to sketch the graph and state the minimum point when the given translation is applied. In most cases you are also asked to state an equation of the translated curve.

    For the completed square ones, do you know how to do those?

    you do  f(x) = x^2
    use that graph to do the ones where the square has been completed

    Then if it was  y=(x+2)^2 - 1 you just transform the x^2 graph by moving it to the left twice as  +2 means shift to the left then  -1 means down in the y axis by 1

    You're right - the (-3,4) is the coordinate of the minimum point, I think you have to write down the equation of the line y=x^2 for how it's been transformed, and for the empty graphs, draw the graph of the equation given.

    It looks like the big brackets are for the vectors of the translations - you could write down the coordinates for the minimum point even if you don't have to for extra practice

    Hope that helped!
