determine the equation of g(x) that results from translating the function f(x) =x^2 +9
I see that you are starting with the basic quadratic equation f(x) = x^2. That equation has already been translated once by adding 9 so you now have f(x) = x^2 + 9. To do any further translating we need to know more about what is being asked. Were you given any other information with this question?
