The horizontal shift depends on the value of . The horizontal shift is described as:
– The graph is shifted to the left units.
– The graph is shifted to the right units.
Horizontal Shift: Left Units
The vertical shift depends on the value of . The vertical shift is described as:
– The graph is shifted up units.
– The graph is shifted down units.
Vertical Shift: None
The sign of describes the reflection across the x-axis. means the graph is reflected across the x-axis.
Reflection about the x-axis: Reflected
The value of describes the vertical stretch or compression of the graph.
is a vertical stretch (makes it narrower)
is a vertical compression (makes it wider)
Vertical Compression: Compressed
To find the transformation, compare the two functions and check to see if there is a horizontal or vertical shift, reflection about the x-axis, and if there is a vertical stretch.
Parent Function:
Horizontal Shift: Left Units
Vertical Shift: None
Reflection about the x-axis: Reflected
Vertical Compression: Compressed
