    I understand that 1 point is moved 5 units left while one is moved 4 units right. How do I explain it. I know the equation starts with g(x) = f(x+?)+?

    That looks like a dilation, not a translation. I don't know how to find the scale or center of dilation though

    oh I see. So the equation is g(x) = 2f(x)?

    I think it is g(x) = f(2x)

    Yea it's the second equation, because the first one is for the y intercept.

    I think maybe g(x) = 2f(x-6).

    because the height doubled and it looks like all the x's were moved right by 6
