Algebra 2 Question. I have an answer and why I think it is that answer, but need further explanation. I think it is f(x1) because it is moving to the left one spot, which means it is going towards the negatives. x is in the parentheses because it stands for any number. Ex. It could be 5  1 making it positive 4.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't know how to explain this, but I'll try lol. left or right means you're changing the units in the xaxis, which is in the parenthesis. left means + (positive), and right means  (negative) up or down means you're changing the unit in the yaxis. This is the number outside the parenthesis. up means + and down means .

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0eg. if f(x) is shifted two units to the right, it would be f(x2). 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
