Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Possible 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1First thing you should ask yourself is, "What is the parent function?". When you figure that out, you'll be half way there.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Are you not given (x,y) = (1/2, 2) ? Try that and see if it works. If not, try (x,y) = (1/2,2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Watch me plug one of the values into the formula: y = –8x + 4 – 2 (2) = 8(1/2) + 4  2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1but that only eliminates 2 of the answers what about the last two
