Graph the parent function $y=\sqrt{x}$. (refer to the attached image below) RECALL: The function $y=f(x-h)$ involves a horizontal shift of either $h$ units to the right of the parent function $f(x)$ if $h \gt 0$, or $|h|$ units to the left when $h \lt0$ The given function has $h=-1$ therefore its graph involves a $1$ unit shift to the left of the parent function. Thus, to graph the given function, shift each plotted point of the parent function $y=\sqrt{x}$ one unit to the left, then connect the points using a curve. (Refer to the attached image in the answer part above.)
