  1. Use what you learned in the parabola investigation to write an equation for each of the parabolas described below. 4-28 HW eTool (Desmos). Homework Help ✎

    1. A parabola just like y = x2 but shifted 8 units right and 5 units down.

    2. A parabola with a stretch factor of 10, sitting with its vertex on the x-axis at (−6, 0).

    3. A downward-opening parabola with vertex (−7, −2) and a vertical compression of 0.6.

y = (x − 8)2 − 5

y = 10(x + 6)2

Use the same method as parts (a) and (b).
