please help Which of the following statements best describes the effect of replacing the graph of y = f(x) with the graph of y = f(x) + 20? (3 points) The graph of y = f(x) will shift left 20 units. The graph of y = f(x) will shift down 20 units. The graph of y = f(x) will shift up 20 units. The graph of y = f(x) will shift right 20 units.

    if we are shifting left or right, we would have () around the equation

    for (x+5) shift left 5 units. (x-5) shift right 5 units. Since there is no () those choices can be eliminated

    "if we are shifting left or right, we would have () around the equation" your equation doesn't have parenthesis around it

    so the ones that say "will shift left" or "will shift right" I eliminate?
