Explain completely how to get a good sketch of the graph of y = (x + 6)2 − 7.
Explain how to change the original graph to represent the graph of y = (x + 6)2 + 2.
Given the original graph, how can you get the graph of
Restrict the domain of the original parabola to x ≥ −6 and graph its inverse function.
What would be the equation for the inverse function if you restricted the domain to x ≥ −6?
Graph a regular y = x2, but place its vertex at (−6, −7).
It would move vertically upwards.
Remember the meaning of absolute value.
Remember how to find the inverse of a function.
