will give medal to whoever helps... The functions f(x) and g(x) are described below. f(x) = 2x + 9 g(x) = 2x - 15 The graph of g(x) is obtained by shifting down the graph of f(x) by _____ units.
The graphs are shifted vertically. The find the distance shifted, calculate the difference between the y-intercepts of each function.
so your saying calculate the -15 -9 ?
Pretty much; it's really \[\left| -15-9 \right|\]
The absolute value of -24 is 24. And 24 is the amount of units shifted down.
so its just 24 for the answer right?
Yes, that's what I would say because of how the question is worded.
