If you have a graphing calculator, this one is probably easiest to do using Plug-In. First, plug in anything you want for a... let's go with a=3. Now graph that equation: y=3x2+2. Next graph the SECOND equation (y=x2+2) and compare the two graphs. You'll see that the second graph is wider than the first, so the answer is (B).
