y = -1(x - 4)^2 + 1 y = -1(x + 1)^2 + 4 y = 1(x + 1)^2 - 4 y = 1(x + 4)^2 - 1

what is the equation of the graph I don't know how to do this one

the parabola is opening UP, so the value of "\(\large a\)" has to be positive in : \[\large y = a(x-h)^2+k\]

perfect! so \(\large h = -1\) and \(\large k = -4\)
