1. y=×^2-4
= (×-2)(×+2)
so intersects X axis at 2 and -2.
as there is a translation of (2,0), curve moves to the right twice hence giving roots of 0 and 4. now equation is y=×(×-4)
if this is gcse the teacher will know you copied from somewhere...but ur welcome

2. to translate right by 2, replace x with x-2.
y = (x-2)^2 = 4
The 0 vertical translation does nothing.

As always, get out some graph paper and DRAW THE GRAPHS!

3. oops (x-2)^2 - 4 = x^2-4x+4 - 4 = x^2-4x
