Warmup/Review:

## Match Transformation Applied To f(x) Equation of Transformed Function f(x)

Vertical stretch by a factor of 3 A. f(3x)
Horizontal shift of 3 units right B. f(3(x + 3))
Vertical shift of 3 units down C. 3f(x) + 3
Horizontal compression by a factor of 3 D. f(x) - 3
Horizontal compression by a factor of 3 E. f(3x + 3)
followed by a horizontal shift of 3 units
left.
Vertical stretch by a factor of 3 followed F. 3(f(x) + 3)
by a vertical shift of 3 units up.
Vertical shift of 3 units up followed by a G. f(x - 3)
vertical stretch by a factor of 3.
Horizontal shift of 3 units left followed H. 3f(x)
by a horizontal compression by a factor
of 3.

Using one of the specified base functions (1/x, sqrt(x), x or x2), we are now going to create the
equation and graph of the transformed function for each of the rows in the chart above.

## Transformed Base Equation of Transformed Graph of Transformed Function

Function Function Function g(x)
A. f(3x) x2
B. f(3(x + 3)) 1/x
C. 3f(x) + 3 sqrt(x)
D. f(x) - 3 x
E. f(3x + 3) x2
F. 3(f(x) + 3) 1/x
G. f(x - 3) sqrt(x)
H. 3f(x) x

For each of the rows in the table below, identify the base function f (x), describe the transformations
that were applied to the base function f(x) to arrive at the transformed function g(x) and then create a
graph of g(x) making sure to label key points on the graph.
Transformed Function Base Description of Transformations Graph of g(x)
g(x) Funct
ion
A. g(x) = 3(x – 4)2 - 5
B. g(x) = 1 / (3x - 6)
C. g(x) = 1/2sqrt(x + 5) - 4
D. g(x) = 2(5(x + 2))

Last Question – Is there another way to transform f(x) to arrive at g(x) for parts B and D above?
