Graph Transformations

y=af(x)
Stretch with scale factor 'a' in y direction. Y co-ordinates are multiplied by a
1 of 6
y=f(ax)
Stretch with scale factor '1/a' in x direction. X co-ordinates are multiplied by 1/a
2 of 6
y=-f(x)
Reflection of graph y=f(x) in the x-axis. Multiply each y co-ordinate by -1
3 of 6
y=f(-x)
Reflection of graph y=f(x) in y-axis. Multiply each x co-ordinate by -1.
4 of 6
y=f(x) + a
Move graph by 'a' units in positive y-axis.
5 of 6
y=f(x+a)
Move graph by 'a' units in negative x-axis.
