Section 3.5 (Sullivan, 8 th ed.) MAC1140, MAC 1147 3-5: Transformations 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 x-axis:   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:
