Which graph represents the function y=(x+1)^2-2 ?
The graph of y =x^2 has a vertex of (0, 0)
The graph of y = (x + h) - k shifts this vertex to the left by h units and down by k units
y = ( x + 1)^2 - 2 shifts (0,0) to the left 1 unit and down 2 units.....so.....the "new" vertex is (-1,-2)
The graph with this vertex is the first one
