Find the function that is finally graphed after the following transformations are applied to the graph of y=square root of x in the order listed. 1. Reflect about the x-axis 2. Shift down 6 units 3. Shift left 4 units. My answer: -(square root x-6)+4 What did I do wrong?
Let's do it step by step: 1. Reflect about x-axis: √x becomes -√x 2.Shift down 6 units: -√x becomes -√x - 6 3.Shift left 4 units: -√x - 6 becomes -√(x+4) - 6 You seem to have confused the horizontal and vertical shifts...
