For the parent function y= square root x , what effect does a value of b = -2 have on the graph? A. Horizontal compression by a factor of 1/2 and a reflection across the y -axis B. Horizontal compression by a factor of 1/2 and a reflection across the x -axis C. Horizontal compression by a factor of -1/2 and a reflection across the y -axis D. Horizontal compression by a factor of =1/2 and a reflection across the x -axis
@jim_thompson5910 really need your help with this one
the value of b is negative, so that means you have a reflection across the y axis
so my answer would be C then correct?
close, the compression/expansion factors are always positive
