# Quadratics and Vertical Shifts

Now apply what you read about vertical shifts.

What do you notice about the four graphs you graphed from the equations in the opening explore?

a) $$f(x) = x^2$$

b) $$f(x) = x^2+2$$

c) $$f(x) = x^2-3$$

d) $$f(x) = x^2-5$$

What conclusions can you draw? How do you know?
