Consider the transformation f(x) ----> f(2x-1). Suppose a point on f(x) is f(3)=2.

What is the new x-coordinate after the transformation to f(2x-1) ?

The new x-coordinate after tranformation is $\displaystyle 2\times 3-1 = 5$ , the y-coordinate can only be found once you know the actual function for $\displaystyle f(x)$
