Unformatted text preview: y = af ( x ) is the graph of y = f ( x ) vertically stretched by multiplying each of its ycoordinates by a . Vertical Shrinking: If 0< a < 1, the graph of y = af ( x ) is the graph of y = f ( x ) vertically shrunk by multiplying each of its ycoordinates by a . Recommended Order for Transformations 1. Vertical stretching or shrinking. 2. Reflection about the xaxis. 3. Vertical and Horizontal Translations. 4. Reflection about the yaxis. Section 1.3 Transformations of Graphs 3 Example 1: Sketch the graph of: 2 1 ) ( += x x f4321 1 2 3 421 1 2 x y Example 2: Given y = 3f(x 2) 1. a. State the transformations needed, in the recommended order. ] b. Suppose (1, 2) is on the graph of f . If the function is transformed y = 3f(x 2) 1, where would the point (1, 2) end up?...
