I plugged in x^2 + 6x + 10 into my calculator and got the required graph and the answer of -3 units parallel to the x-axis.
But how does one come to this answer of -3units 'manually' without using a calculator?
We can write it as
g = x^2 + 6x + 10
g = x^2 + 6x + 9 + 1
g = (x + 3)^2 + 1
Compare it with the ...
