The graph of is shifted 3 units down and 2 units right. Which equation represents the new graph?

This is called the 'standard form' for the equation of a parabola:y =a (x-h)2+vDepending on whether the constant a is positive or negative, the parabola will open up or down.

is a graph;that is used to jock down data.(uses dots and connects lines to it)

It is the same as the original reflected in the line whose equation is y=x. You will get the same effect if you imagine lifting the graph off the paper, and flipping it clockwise through 180 degrees and then putting it down so that the y-axis is where the x-axis was and the x axis is where the y-axis was.

The graph of is shifted 3 units down and 2 units right. Which equation represents the new graph?

y = 4x + 3

Yes, for example if you have y=x but you shifted the equation up 3 units hence: y=x+3. than you will receive a different y from every instance (point) of x. Reference: collegemathhelper.com/2015/11/horizontal-graph-transformations-for.html

vertical axis :)

I'm guessing that your equation is y = ax² + c (as there are limitations as to what punctuation, including mathematical symbols, can be put in a question). Increasing c by 4 units shifts the graph 4 units up the y-axis. If you equation was y = ax² - c, then increasing c by 4 units shifts the graph 4 units down the y-axis.

I believe it's a transition.

This equation yx3 k is that of a parabola. The variable h and k represent the coordinents of the vertex. The geometrical value k serves to move the graph of the parabola up or down along the line.

Yes, always use your clutch for any kind of shifting
