To translate this equation, you first have to simplify it then find the value of y. The graph will then be mapped using the value of the x and y coordinates. Re-write F(x) = (x - 2)? - 4 as y= (x - 2). Therefore, y=(x - 2) (x - 2) ? 4. Simplifying this further gives F(x) = x^2 - 4x as the final answer.
