I don't know how to explain this, but I'll try lol. left or right means you're changing the units in the x-axis, which is in the parenthesis. left means + (positive), and right means - (negative) up or down means you're changing the unit in the y-axis. This is the number outside the parenthesis. up means + and down means -.
eg. if f(x) is shifted two units to the right, it would be f(x-2). if f(x) is shifted two units to the left, it would be f(x+2) if f(x) is shifted two units down, it would be f(x)-2 if f(x) is shifted two units up, it would be f(x)+2
In the x-axis, are you sure left means positive and right means negative?
I am sure of it.

No. Read what I posted again.
well done mathway - I've been doing math for many years and still find it difficult to explain the 'to the' left' and 'to the right thing'
it's f(x+1)? right?
It is f(x+1). Good job! :)
