The graphs of many functions are transformations of the graphs of very basic functions. The graph of y = – x 2 is the reflection of the graph of y = x 2 in the x -axis. Example : The graph of y = x 2 + 3 is the graph of y = x 2 shifted upward three units . This is a vertical shift . x y -4 4 4 -4 -8 8 y = x 2 y = x 2 + 3 y = x 2

f ( x ) f ( x ) + c + c f ( x ) c -c If c is a positive real number, the graph of f ( x ) + c is the graph of y = f ( x ) shifted upward c units. Vertical Shifts If c is a positive real number, the graph of f ( x ) – c is the graph of y = f ( x ) shifted downward c units. x y

x y y = f ( x ) y = f ( x c ) + c y = f ( x + c ) - c If c is a positive real number, then the graph of f ( x – c ) is the graph of y = f ( x ) shifted to the right c units. Horizontal Shifts If c is a positive real number, then the graph of f ( x + c ) is the graph of y = f ( x ) shifted to the left c units.

Vertical Shift If g ( x ) is a function and k is a positive constant, then the graph of y = g ( x ) + k is the graph of y = g (x) shifted vertically upward by k units. y = g ( x ) − k is the graph of y = g ( x ) shifted vertically downward by k units.

The Heating Schedule for an Office Building Example 1 To save money, an office building is kept warm only during business hours. At midnight ( t = 0), the building’s temperature ( H ) is 50 F . This temperature is maintained until 4 am. Then the building begins to warm up so that by 8 am the temperature is 70 F. At 4 pm the building begins to cool. By 8 pm, the temperature is again 50 F. Suppose that the building’s superintendent decides to keep the building 5 F warmer than before.
