Aaron and Davis need to write the equation that will produce the graph at right.

Aaron: "This is impossible! How are we supposed to know if the parent function is a parabola or a semicircle? If we don't know the parent function, there is no way to write the equation."

Davis: "Don't panic yet. I am sure we can determine its parent function if we study the graph carefully."

Do you agree with Davis? Explain completely and, if possible, write the equation of the graph.
