The equation of the translated function is:

g(x) = (x + 3)^2 - 2

### How to get the equation for the blue graph?

We can see that the blue graph is a translation of the red one, where the equation for the red graph is:

f(x) = x^2

Remember that the translations are:

Horizontal translation:

For a general function f(x), a horizontal translation of N units is written as:

g(x) = f(x + N).

If N is positive, the shift is to the left.

If N is negative, the shift is to the right.

Vertical translation:

For a general function f(x), a vertical translation of N units is written as:

g(x) = f(x) + N.

If N is positive, the shift is upwards.

If N is negative, the shift is downwards.

By analyzing the vertices, we can see that the vertex of the blue graph is at (-3, -2) so we have a translation of 3 units to the left and 2 units down, meaning that we have:

g(x) = f(x + 3) - 2 = (x + 3)^2 - 2

So the correct option is A.
