At the beginning of each subsection you draw .
a) symmetry relative to x-axis and you get
b) symmetry y-axis; you get
c) symmetry x-axis (you get ), and later symmetry y-axis - you have
Hi, i need some help to solve this question,
First, what does it mean to "state the transformation"?
Second,can someone solve it and show me how he/she did it?
State the transformation applied to y = log_{5}x for each of the following:
a) y = −log_{5}x
b)y = log_{5}(−x)
c)y = −log_{5}(−x)
Thank very much!

Thanks for the answer.
Can you explain me what do you mean by symmetry relative to x-axis?
I mean I just dont get what they want me to do here, draw the graphs?
(i am sorry i ask so many questions, english isnt my first language and i need to relearn math if i plan to get into computer science program in a toronto)
I think that first you must write all transformations and then draw the graphs, but I may misunderstood.
You have drawn a graph:
Now I try to explain "symmetry relative to x-axis":
x-axis is a "mirror" for your graph .
So, after this "symmetry relative to x-axis" each point of the graph with coordinates (x,y) will have coordinates (x,-y).
For instance: point with coordinates (that point belongs to the graph ), after "symmetry" will have coordinates .
Another example: point will have coordinates etc,
Point after transformation will be the same point. Understand? I cannot explain this problem more clearly
