Animation: Move a parabola
Answered
Hello, Geogebra experts! Is it possible to animate a parabola to move? Let's say you want to move a parabola described by x^2  2x  3 over to x^2  3x  4, and show the parabola and any points on it moving. If possible, can you please provide the steps, or point to a tutorial?
Thank you.

It depends on how you want to move the first parabola.
A simple example is attached. Create f: y= x^22x3 and g: y=x^23x4 and a slider a with values in [0,1]
Create the vertex VF of f, and the vertex VG of f.
Create the u=Vector(VF,VF), then create f'=Translate(f, a u)
Move the slider or select its Animation feature to move the first parabola over the second.
See the attached file.
