Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1is it \[\Large \sqrt{x1}\] OR is it \[\Large \sqrt{x}1\] ??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that's ok. thanks for clarifying

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so the basic rule is that if you have some function f(x), if you replaced x with xh then the entire graph shifts h units to the right (if h is positive) for example \[\Large f(x) = \sqrt{x}\] \[\Large f(\color{red}{x}) = \sqrt{\color{red}{x}}\] \[\Large f(\color{red}{x7}) = \sqrt{\color{red}{x7}} \ \text{shift 7 units right}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in this case it would shift one unit to the right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if h was negative, then the shift would go left eg: \[\Large f(x) = \sqrt{x}\] \[\Large f(\color{red}{x}) = \sqrt{\color{red}{x}}\] \[\Large f(\color{red}{x(12)}) = \sqrt{\color{red}{x(12)}} \ \text{shift 12 units left}\] \[\Large f(\color{red}{x+12}) = \sqrt{\color{red}{x+12}} \ \text{shift 12 units left}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1correct, in this problem, the `x1` under the root means "shift the parent graph 1 unit to the right"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I recommend you compare the two graphs using something like desmos https://www.desmos.com/calculator

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@jim_thompson5910 I have another question, if it said x+7 (kinda like what you wrote but addition) would it be like shift the unites to the left?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yep the `x+7` under the root would mean "shift 7 units left"
