Given f(x) = –2(x – 1)2 + 3, state the equation of the parent graph. Then describe how f(x) is transformed from the parent graph. Homework Help ✎
Pay attention to the expression in the parentheses and also its exponent.
The graph of y = f(x) is reflected over the x-axis to open downward, stretched vertically by a factor of 2, and then translated 1 unit right and 3 units up to have a vertex at (1, 3).
