# Use the method of completing the square to transform the quadratic equation into the equation form (x – p)^2 = q. 12 - 8x^2 + x^4 = 0 A) (x2 - 4)2 = -4 B) (x2 - 4)2 = 4 C) (x2 - 2)2 = -4 D) (x2 - 2)2 = 4

Answer:                              x⁴ - 8x² = 0
x⁴ - 8x² + 16 = 0 + 16
x⁴ - 4x² - 4x² + 16 = 16
x²(x²) - x²(4) - 4(x²) + 4(4) = 16
x²(x² - 4) - 4(x² - 4) = 16
(x² - 4)(x² - 4) = 16
(x² - 4)² = 16

How does the graph of g(x)=1/x-5+2 compare to the graph of the parent function f(x)=1/x?

The equation that is given in this item can be written for clarity as follows:
g(x) = 1/(x - 5)  + 2
It can be seen that the x-component is subtracted with 5 and the g(x) which would lie in the y-axis is added with two. This suggests that the graph of this equation is shifted to the right by 5 units and upwards by 2 units compared to the graph of the parent function.

The graph of g(x)=1/x-5+2 compare to the graph of the parent function f(x)=1/x.

Given: g(x)=1/x-5+2 , Parent function is f(x)=1/x

The equation that is given in this item can be written as follows:

We can check that the component of x is subtracted with five & the g(x) which lies in the y-axis after will added with two.

This gives solution of that the graph of the equation is Shifted to right side by 5 units & upwards by 2 units which is compared to the graph of the parent function.
