3.5 Putting It All Together

Warmup/Review:

Match the first column with the column on the right:

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?
