Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Hint: When transforming f(x)>g(x) in the form g(x)=f(xh)+k, then g(x) is translated from f(x) to the right by h, and up by k. We know that when \(f(x)=log_3(x)\), there is vertical asymptote at x=0 towards negative infinity, and that f(1)=0, and f(3)=1. Observe the graph of g(x) to see how g(x) was transformed from f(x), and work out the transformation accordingly.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2f(x)2, would shift the graph down the vertical axis, but you want it to shift to the left

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0im really bad at this so would it be f(x2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh ok so it would be positive? f(x) = log3^(x+2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2i think you mean g(x) = f(x+2) = log_3 (x+2)
