GRAPHING y = x2 + q ........... or y − q = x2
example: For the function y = x2 + 4 : y q= • Complete the table of values. x x2 −3 9 −2 4 −1 0 1 1 2 4 3 • Use the table to draw the
graph of this function. 1 0 x2 + 4 = y 9 5 • Compare this function’s
graph to the basic graph. −5 0 5x −5 • What are the coordinates of the graph’s vertex?
• What is the equation of graph’s axis of symmetry?
• What is the domain and range of this function? y = x2 + 4 can be written as y − 4 = x2 . So replacing y by y − 4 in the equation causes a upward
translation to the graph. To see why, determine the values of y − 4 and then determine the new
ycoordinates.
