Vertical Shifts: If a real number c is added to the function y = f(x), the graph of the new function y = f(x) + c is the graph of f shifted up if c > 1, down if c < 1.
Horizontal Shifts: If x in a function y = f(x) is replaced by x – c (c a real number), the graph of the new function y = f(x c) is shifted horizontally left if c < 0) or right if c > 0. Stretches and compressions: When a function y = f(x) is multiplied by a positive number k, the graph of the new function y = kf(x) is vertically compressed if 0 < k < 1 or stretched if k > 1.
Reflection about the xaxis: When the function y = f(x) is multiplied by –1, the graph of the new function y = f(x) is the reflection about the axis. Graph:
(1) a. y = f(x) =  x
b. y = f(x) =  x  3 (3) a. y = f(x) =
b. y = f(x) =  x x c. y = f(x) =  x  2
d. y = f(x) =  x  2  3 c. y = f(x) =
d. y = f(x) = 3 −x
x +3 +4 (2) a. y = f(x) = x2
b. y = f(x) = 2x2
c. y = f(x) = ½x2 TRY THESE SECTION 3.4:
Classify each of the following functions or graphs as Constant, Linear, Identity, Square, Cube, Square Root, or Absolute Value:
1. f(x) = 5x
2. f(x) = x
3. f(x) = 4 4. 5. 6. 7. For the following function, (a) find the domain, (b) graph it, (c) locate any intercepts, (d) find the range: 2x + 5 7 ≤ x < 1 1≤x<0
8. f ( x ) = 2

x≥0 8.
9. Section 3.5
