Graph each function using the techniques of shifting, compressing, stretching, and/or reflecting. Start with the graph of y = x^2 and show all stages.

Before showing me how to graph the functions below, I need a clear definition of the words:

*shifting

*compressing

*stretching

*reflecting

What do the words above mean in math?

QUESTIONS:

(1) f(x) = sqrt{x + 1}

(2) f(x) = h(x) = 2int(x - 1)
