    There is an alteration in each of the functions, diverging from the original. But Iʻm afraid I donʻt know how to properly answer this, even though I have an idea, idk...I donʻt want to answer this even tho I am unsure, sorry

    Shifting left: \(f(x+b) \implies \text{graph shifts b units left}\) shifting up/down: \(f(x) +b ~, \qquad f(x) -b \implies \text{graph moves up b units or down b units}\) Shifting right: \(f(x-b) \implies \text{graph shifts b units to the right}\) Inverting: \(-f(x) \implies \text{ graph that is right side up flips upside down}\) \(\qquad \qquad \qquad \qquad \text{ or for odd functions flips across the y-axis }\)
