    transformations

    describe how the graph of y=f(-2x+6)+7 can be obtained from the graph of y=f(x)

    now I'm just gonna double check here,correct me if I'm wrong

    +6 would be the horizontal translation
    +7 would be the vertical

    I'm just a little confused about the -2 beside the x,what exactly does that mean?

    If f(x)=mx+c

    Both +6 and +7 are vertical translation.

    -2:
    The -ve sign will change its gradient to opposite sign gradient.
    The 2 will increase its steepness.
