(0, 2) x y 5 5-5-5 Vertical and Horizontal Shifting Example: Martin-Gay, Beginning and Intermediate Algebra, 4ed 7 Reflections of Graphs Reflection about the x-axis The graph of g ( x ) = f ( x ) is the graph of f ( x ) reflected about the x-axis. Martin-Gay, Beginning and Intermediate Algebra, 4ed 8 Reflect the original graph about the x-axis . Reflections of Graphs Graph ( ) . f x x = -Begin with the graph of ( ) . f x x = x y 5 5-5-5 (4, 2) (4, 2) Example:...
