heh i've calmed down a bit so let's see if I can get this.
Mind if we use a different problem?
y = -f(2x) , It would horizontally shrink by 1/2 and reflect across the x-axis
y = f(2x) - 1 , It would horizontally shrink by 1/2 and vertically shift down one unit.
Did i get those right?
Also if those two were supposedly written in function notation, how would it look?
I'm curious because for instance
y = 2f(x + 2) - 2 is the same as f(x) = 2(x + 2) - 2 where both would horizontally shift two units to the right, vertically shift 2 units down and vertically stretch by 2.
How would y = f(4x) or y = f(2x) - 1 look if it were to start with
sorry if it's a stupid question but I'm curious =/
