    looks like the graph of the log has been moved down by 2 units, not to the right by 2 units

    \[\log_3(3)=1\] to get it to be \(-1\) you would subtract 2

    also you have \((1,-2)\) on the graph and \[\log_3(1)=0\]

    again subtract 2 i would go with \[\log_3(x)-2\]

    So would that be the answer, well f(x)-2 ?
