# Quadratic Graphs by Completing the Square

$$y=(x-a)^2+b$$ Example 1 Draw the graph of $y=(x-1)^2+2$. The vertex is $(1,2)$ and the graph is concave up. Example 2 Draw the graph of $y=(x-1)^2-2$. The vertex is $(1,-2)$ and the graph is concave up. Example 3 Draw the graph of $y=(x+1)^2+2$. The vertex is $(-1,2)$ and the graph is concave up. Example 4 Draw […]
