Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1In general, if you replace x with xh, you are shifting the entire graph of f(x) `h` units to the left. That is if h is positive if h is negative, then you go the same number of units but to the right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1notice how f(x5) and f(xh) match up

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because your replacing 5 with h?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeah so in your specific case, h = 5 so when we go from f(x) to f(x5) we shift all of f(x) 5 units to the right. Sorry I mixed up the order above. I mixed up left and right, my bad

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1h is positive, you shift right h is negative, you shift left

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1`oh okay so thats all i write?` yeah all you need to say really is that the entire graph shifts 5 units to the right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that 3 out front means every y coordinate gets tripled visually what that does is vertically stretch the graph by a factor of 3. it's basically 3 times taller than it was before

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1example: say we know the point (2,5) is on f(x) we know for a fact that (2,15) is on g(x) because 3*f(2) = 3*5 = 15

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1imagine that happens with every point on f(x)
