# parent function with Inverse function

**Question description**

1. Now consider the parent function *P(x) = x2*, and let g(x) = 4(x-1)2 + 8.

(A) Explain step-by-step, graphing/labeling **(on graph paper!)** the parent, each intermediate function, if we do transformations in these two orders: (You will have to figure out the exact transformations in each case.)

(i)Horizontal shift then vertical stretch then vertical shift; (ii)Horizontal shift then vertical shift then vertical stretch.

(B) (i) Explain how you can cut the domain of our *g(x)* so that at least part of it has an inverse function (I.e. passes the horizontal line test).

(ii) Now find the equation of the INVERSE function of our *g(x).*
