Parent function: \[f(x)=x^6\] |dw:1435434334236:dw|
let's start with the number in the "h" space. How much has the graph shifted and in which direction?
4, and to the right? or would it be left because there is a - sign next to it?
4 to the left, and yes because of the - sign
now look at a. we know it was reflected because of the - sign outside. By what factor was it stretched?
I'm not sure what that means exactly..
Look 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.
does that make sense?
ok. and then the last thing is the vertical shift
what do you think, up or down?
Awesome! So is that it? How should I word this?
that's it. you should go in the order we did it, order of operations style. It was shifted left by 4, reflected over the x-axis, stretched by a factor of 3, and shifted down by 8.
