    Need help with graphing.. Transformations?--Help

    This is the equation. I have to graph it y=-3(1/2)^x-2 +6 The x-2 is the exponent. Would the x-2 part be a transformation? I cant remember. As in 2 units to the right?

    Yes, it is a horizontal shift.

    The graph will resemble the base equation only the -2 will make the graph shift to the right 2 digits.
