I am getting conflicting suggestions in class about the transformations of graphs and (i) the order to carry out transformations and (ii) the effect it has on the graph
example e^(3x+2) -1
I though its was first a stretch of 1/3 parallel to the x axis, then a translation of 2 units to the left and FINALLY the whole graph moved down one unit.
Understanding that e^(3x+2) is e^2e^3x suggests that this is two stretches?
Second part...the order in whcih the lnx transformations occur has foxed me too.
Am I stretching first and then applying translations?
