No, it's not. If x= h then the y= a(h- h)^2+ k= k. For any other x, since a square is never negative y is larger than k. (h, k) is the vertex. h is the x value of the vertex, not the y value. The correct answer is C.

• D. It is shifted 4 units to the left.

CORRECT OR NOT
No, that is not correct. y= 3(x- 4)^2 is 0 when x= 4 but is positive for any other x. The graph has vertex at (4, 0). y= 3x^2 is 0 when x= 0 but is positive for any other value of x. The graph has vertex (0, 0). The vertex has been shifted from (4, 0) to (0, 0) so the entire graph has been shifted 4 units to the left. The correct answer is D.

C?
CORRECT OR NOT
Yes, that is correct! A has vertex at (-1, 3) and opens upward so 3 is the minimum value. B has vertex at (-1, 2) and opens upward so 2 is the minimum value. C has vertex at (-1, 2) and opens downward so 2 is the maximum value. D has vertex at (2, 3) and opens downward so 3 is the minimum value.

Thanks for replying... the SECOND question y= 3(x- 4)^2 the correct answer is ti the right not to the left

Again thanx much
