Your friend hands you a graph of the engine power statistics of a race car. He says, “I know this graph is f(x) = –3(x + 4)6 – 8 but I can’t remember how it is related to the graph of x6.” Explain to your friend how the graph f(x) is a translation of the graph x6.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now look at a. we know it was reflected because of the  sign outside. By what factor was it stretched?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Look at the graph. the red one is the original x^6. The blue one has been stretched vertically by a factor of 3, meaning it increases 3 times faster than x^6. The green one has been compressed by a factor of 1/3, meaning it only increases at a third as fast as x^6.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that's it. you should go in the order we did it, order of operations style. It was shifted left by 4, reflected over the xaxis, stretched by a factor of 3, and shifted down by 8.
