Answer

The graph of $y=x^{2}$ (black) - is shifted to the right 2 units to produce the graph of $y=(x-2)^{2}$ (red) - is shifted to the right 4 units to produce the graph of $y=(x-4)^{2}$ (blue) - is shifted to the left 2 units to produce the graph of $y=(x+2)^{2}$ (green) We predict that - shifting the graph of $y=x^{2}$ to the LEFT 4 UNITS produces $y=(x+4)^{2}$ - shifting the graph of $y=x^{2}$ to the RIGHT 5 UNITS produces $y=(x-5)^{2}$
