2.5 - Transformations of Graphs Every College Algebra student must be able to identify the following six parent graphs. f ( x ) = x f ( x ) = x 2 x y x y Domain = ________________________ Domain = ________________________ Range = __________________________ Range = __________________________ f ( x ) = x 3 f ( x ) = | x | x y x y Domain = ________________________ Domain = ________________________ Range = __________________________ Range = __________________________ f ( x ) = x f ( x ) = 3 x x y x y Domain = ________________________ Domain = ________________________ Range = __________________________ Range = __________________________

Vertical Translations If f is a function and k is a positive constant, then the graph of œ y = f ( x ) + k is the graph of y = f ( x ) shifted up vertically k units. œ y = f ( x ) - k is the graph of y = f ( x ) shifted down vertically k units. Examples: The graph of f ( x ) = x 3 is given below. Sketch the graph of g ( x ) = x 3 - 5. x -8 -6 -4 -2 2 y 8 6 4 2 -2 -4 -6 -8 4 6 8 The graph ofa function f is given below. Sketch the graph of y = f ( x ) + 3. x -8 -6 -4 -2 2 y 8 6 4 2 -2 -4 -6 -8 f 4 6 8
HorizontalTranslations If f is a function and h is a positive constant, then the graph of œ y = f ( x + h ) is the graph of y = f ( x ) shifted left horizontally h units. œ y = f ( x - h ) is the graph of y = f ( x ) shifted right horizontally h units.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
