Determine the equation of g(x) that results from translating the function f(x) = x2 + 1 upward 12 units. 7/21/2014 | Kimberly from Detroit, MI | 2 Answers | 0 Votes Mark favorite Subscribe Comment
A vertical shift by 12 units is denoted as adding 12 to the end of the given function. Therefore, g(x) = f(x) + 12 = (x^{2 }+ 1) + 12 = x^{2} + 13. 7/21/2014 | Olivia B. Comment Comments These are my option for answers I have. So is D the correct answer? A. g(x) = (x + 13)2 B. g(x) = (x + 12)2 + 1 C. g(x) = x2 - 11 D. g(x) = x2 + 13 7/21/2014 | Kimberly from Detroit, MI Yes, the answer would be D. 7/21/2014 | Olivia B. Comment
