For the graph of y = (x  3)^{2} the vertex has shifted over to x = 3. Sketch its graph. Finally consider y = (x  3)^{2} + 5. The relationship between this and the previous expression y = (x  3)^{2} is that 5 has been added to each yvalue, that is the graph has been shifted upwards 5 units. Sketch its graph. Penny
