If anyone could help i'd really appreciate it (Happy)

Describe how y= f(x) is transformed by each of the following:

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

b) y= f(-x) + 5

Any good algebra textbook should have a table summarizing function transformations. Here's a table that I got from this website:

Attachment 27818

I'll help you get started. If you have $y=-f(x+2)-5$ , identify the things that are going on. For instance, there's a negative sign in front of the f(x). According to the table, that's a reflection of the function about the x-axis. Continue that methodology for +2 inside the function notation, and the -5 outside of the function notation.
