    it is simple since I have to decrease the value of the y-coordinate by 2 units, so k=2

    so it is K = 2 ?

    \[\large\rm f(x-h)=\] horizontal shift \[\large\rm f(x)+k=\] vertical shift h units shift to the right or left ( if h is negative then some units to the right , if h is positive then some units to the left) k = vertical shift k tells us how many units we should shift the graph up or down if it's negative then k units down if it is positive then k units up

    okay so it would be k = -2 right?

    negative sing is already in the equation \[\large\rm y=(0.5)^x\color{ReD}{ -} k\] i guess x is an exponent right

    hmm let's say it's -2 sub k for -2 \[\large\rm y=(0.5)^x\color{ReD}{ -} (-2)\] you should substitute -2 by -1 = `+2` by the question says `down 2 unit`

    \[\large\rm y=(0.5)^x\color{ReD}{ -} (+2)\] looks good to me 2
