    Re: Transformations

    Both functions are related but one function is shifting to left by four.

    SO for example,

    f(x)=x^2
    the parabola is at the origin (0,0).
    f(x+4)=(x+4)^2
    The vertex of the parabola is at (-4,0).

    In general if a is positive f(x-a) moves f(x) a units to the right. If a is positive f(x+a) moves f(x) a units to the left.
