Which steps transform the graph of y=x^2 to y=2(x2)^2+2.
a) translate 2 units to the left translate down 2 units stretch by factor 2
b)translate 2 units to the right translate up 2 units stretch by the factor 2
c)reflect across the xaxis translate 2 units to the left translate down 2 units stretch by the factor 2
d)reflect across the xaxis translate 2 units to the right translate up 2 units stretch by the factor 2
Can someone please help me, not sure how to do this problem.

Looks like D to me
Technically, the stretching is done before the translation. Otherwise the coordinates of the vertex would also be scaled. 
Okay thank you
