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.
In this case, which means that the graph is not shifted up or down.
