How can the graph of g(x)=3square root x+3 be obtained from the graph of g(x)= 3 square root x?

A. shift the graph 3 units right

b. shift the graph 3 units up

c. shift the graph 3 units down

d. shift the graph 3 units left

I am having problems with the square roots. Can someone please help!!

Ladybug, you often tend to forget to put in brackets, so

if you shift

y = 3√x

" to the left 3 units" (d)

you get y = 3√(x+3)

whereas y = 3√x + 3 would have been "up 3 units" (b)
