Parabola of the form y=x²+c - Examples, Exercises and Solutions

Family of Parabolas y=x2+c y=x²+c : Vertical Shift

The basic quadratic function y=x2y=x^2 with the addition of CC yields the function y=x2+cy=x^2+c
The meaning of CC is the vertical shift of the function upwards or downwards.
If CC is positive: the function will rise by the number of steps shown in CC.
If CC is negative: the function will descend by the number of steps shown in CC
