1. Fully explain how to identify transformations by looking at the equation of a parent function. One can identify transformations when looking at a parent function and noticing what additions have been made to the equation. If a number is added to or subtracted from the outside of the parent function the graph will be transformed up or down, respectively. For example if the parent function is ,then to transform it up by four, the equation becomes . For a horizontal transformation, the transformation number is within the parent function. Addition causes a transformation to the left while subtraction goes to the right, making an opposite effect. For example with the function , to transform it right by four the equation becomes . For a stretch or compression the function is multiplied by the number to stretch or compress. A whole number creates a stretch, while a fraction creates a compression.

    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.

    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.
