Given f(x) = 1/x^2, sketch the graph of y = -f(x + 1) + 4.
Unsure how to do this!
any help would be appreciated!
start by sketching the parent function f(x) = 1/x^2
the following transformations to f(x) = 1/x^2 occur in the order given ...
1. f(x+1) ... horizontal shift left 1 unit
2. -f(x+1) ... reflect over the x-axis
3. -f(x+1) = 4 ... vertical shift up 4 units
that's all folks.
