I have several problems that look like this.

Could someone walk me through the first one:

The graph of the function y=f(x) contains the point (2,5)

What point is guaranteed to be on the graph of y=f(x+3)-5 ?

Wait I think I have it...

Ohh! I have to choose an x value that will bring it back to f(2) .. soo... x= -1

y= f(-1+3)-5

y= f(2) - 5

y= 5-5

y=0

(-1,0)
