Reflect this about a horizontal line passing through its turning point. I have also done this, with the equation now being y= (-x^2 -4.5)+7x -10

1.The function is now translated 4 units to the left.

At this point I am lost as to where I insert the next translations into the equation.

I can hand graph this onto paper but the equation escapes me.

2. The function is now stretched by a factor of 2.

I am also lost at this point.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Thank you.
