• Does this function have a maximum value or a minimum value? What is it?
• What is the yintercept of the graph?
• What are the approximate values of the graph’s xintercepts? 5 x Unit 1 – Day 5: Combining Transformations Page 2 of 3 Another (slower) method to graph y = 2(x + 5)2 − 7 is to complete this table to find the vertex and
other points to plot, then draw the rest of the graph. x + 5 (x + 5)2 x −2 0 1 1 2 (x,y) 1 0 2(x + 5)2 − 7 = y 4 −1 2(x + 5)2 4 Are these five points on the graph of this equation? SUMMARY
To draw the graph of y = a(x − p)2 + q apply the transformations of a, p, and q in this order to the
graph of the basic quadratic function.
• Apply the transformation(s) due to a. y If a < 0 reflect the graph about the xaxis.
If a > 1 or a < −1 expand the graph away from the xaxis.
If −1 < a < 1 compress the graph toward the xaxis.
• Apply the transformation due to p. q If p > 0 translate the graph to the right.
If p < 0 transl...
