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
Does it only give you one function?
yes thats the only one.... sorry i havent been giving u medals ! i completely forgopt!
Okay, f(x)=x is the parent function of all linear functions. Give me a minute to figure it out? :o)
Well, in this case it's going to be f(x) = |x|
Its range is greater than or equal to 0
So, thats the parent function
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
