1. describe how y=f(x) is transformed by each of the following:

a) y = -f(x+2) - 5

b) y = f(-x) + 5

if some could please help! Thank you in advanced !

What does swapping x for x- 2 do to the graph? It might help to graph y= x- 2 itself first.

Same for swapping x for -x.

What does swapping y for y+ 5 do to the graph? What is the difference between y= x and y= x- 5? - Feb 14th 2013, 11:35 PMMINOANMANRe: y=f(x) transformation
the transformation f(x+2) translates the graph 2 points on the left. The transformation -f(x+2) -5 translates the function 2 points to the left and 5 points down then refleccts it over the x-axis.

The transformation f(-x) +5 reflects the graph over the y-axis and translates it up 5 points.
