Below is the graph of the function $y = 3(x + 1)^2  2$ with the axes in black. The instructions are to move the axes to the red lines. The shape of the graph hasn't changed, all that has changed is that a point on the graph of $y = 3(x + 1)^2  2$ has its Xcoordinate and Ycoordinate each increased by 2 relative to the new axes. The equation of the graph relative to the new coordinates is $y = 3(x  1)^2$ Penny
