Possible answers: (1/2,2) ; x=1/2 ; translated to the left 1/2 unit and up 2 units. (1/2,2) ; x=1/2 ; translated to the left 1/2 unit, up 2 units, and reflected in the xaxis. (1/2,2) ; x=1/2 ; translated to the right 1/2 unit and up 2 units, and reflected in the yaxis. (1/2,2) ; x=1/2 ; translated to the right 1/2 unit and up 2 units

First thing you should ask yourself is, "What is the parent function?". When you figure that out, you'll be half way there.

Well, one thing you can do is insert the possible (x,y) values into the formula to see which ones work. Once you do that, you should be able to eliminate at least two of the answers.

Are you not given (x,y) = (1/2, 2) ? Try that and see if it works. If not, try (x,y) = (1/2,2)

Watch me plug one of the values into the formula: y = –8x + 4 – 2 (2) = 8(1/2) + 4  2

There's only one possible right answer. I just checked again. If you do the arithmetic properly, you should be able to find it.

Good job. Sometimes you have to think outside the box with these questions.
