(0, –3) Vertical and Horizontal Shifting Example: Martin-Gay, Beginning and Intermediate Algebra, 4ed 6 Graph ( ) 2 . f x x = + Begin with the graph of f ( x ) = | x| . Shift the original graph to the left 2 units. (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 .

### 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.

Kiran Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.
