f(x) means...
A function of x
1 of 9
y=f(x)+a
Moves graph a places up the y axis
2 of 9
y=f(x)-a
Moves graph a places down the y axis
3 of 9
y=f(x+a)
Moves graph - a places along the x axis (moves left)
4 of 9
y=f(x-a)
Moves graph + a places along the x axis (moves right)
5 of 9
y=kf(x)
Stretches graph k times in the y axis from the origin
6 of 9
y=f(kx)
Stretches the graph in the x axis by a scale factor of 1/k
7 of 9
y=-f(x)
Mirrors the graph in the x axis
8 of 9
