Can you tell me if my answer would be marked correct? My answer was
Transformation of 4,3 (T 4,3) followed by a reflection in the xaxis.If
I graphed the question and wrote that, would I get full credit


Hi Abraham,
The question is
Graph and label the equations
a: y = x^{2}
b: y =  (x  4)^{2} + 3
Describe the composition of transforms performed on a to get b.
If by T 4,3 you mean the linear transformation that takes (0,0) to
(4,3) then I agree with your answer.
I would have said
 A horizontal translation of 4 units, then
 a vertical translation of 3 units, and finally
 a reflection in the xaxis.
