# Thread: Anyone Good With Algebra 2?

1. ## Anyone Good With Algebra 2?

Wanted to see if anyone here was good with algerbra 2 and would be able to get on join.me and help me take assignments on it.

Currently going over:

-Reflections and Translations
-Stretches and Compressions
-Composition of Functions

-Reflections and Translations
Graph Reflections & Transformations:
$\displaystyle f(x)+a$ shifts the graph up a units for positive values of a, and shifts down for negative values of a.
$\displaystyle f(x+1)$ shifts the graph LEFT for positive values of a, and shifts RIGHT for negative values of a.
$\displaystyle -f(x)$ reflects graph in x-axis
$\displaystyle f(-x)$ reflects graph in y-axis

-Stretches and Compressions
Graph Stretches & Compression:
$\displaystyle kf(x)$ scales the graph vertically. i.e. stretches if k>1 and compresses if k<1
$\displaystyle f(kx)$ scales the graph horizontally. i.e compresses if k>1 and stretches if k<1

-Composition of Functions
Composite functions example:
$\displaystyle f(x)=x^2 -1, g(x)=3x-4$
$\displaystyle f(g(x))$
$\displaystyle =f(3x-4)$
$\displaystyle =(3x-4)^2 +1$

$\displaystyle g(f(x))$
$\displaystyle =g(x^2 +1)$
$\displaystyle =3(x^2 +1)-4$
