## kandsbbf 2 years ago Compare the function with the parent function. Without graphing, what are the vertex, axis of symmetry, and transformations of the parent function? y = │8x – 2│ – 7 (–, –7); x = –; translated to the right units and up 7 units (, 7); x = ; translated to the right units and up 7 units (–, 7); x = –; translated to the left units and up 7 units (, –7); x = ; translated to the right units and down 7 units

@Butterfly16

2. Butterfly16

Does it only give you one function?

3. kandsbbf

yes thats the only one.... sorry i havent been giving u medals ! i completely forgopt!

4. Butterfly16

Okay, f(x)=x is the parent function of all linear functions. Give me a minute to figure it out? :o)

5. Butterfly16

Well, in this case it's going to be f(x) = |x|

6. Butterfly16

Its range is greater than or equal to 0

7. Butterfly16

So, thats the parent function

8. Butterfly16

Here's our parent function graph.

im sorry im really confused

Okay, if you read this site and go through the little slide show I think you'll understand a little more. So read this and tell me if you understand the parent function. :o) Remember, with this function we're looking at the absolute value. :o) http://www.mathops.com/free/a1fn017.php
