We have outlined the sequence of transformations in the above exposition; all that remains is to plot all five intermediate stages. Our last example turns the tables and asks for the formula of a function given a desired sequence of transformations. If nothing else, it is a good review of function notation. Example 1.8.5. Let f (x) = x2 . Find and simplify the formula of the function g (x) whose graph is the result of f undergoing the following sequence of transformations. Check your answer using a graphing calculator. 1. Vertical shift up 2 units 2. Reflection across the x-axis 3. Horizontal shift right 1 unit 4. Horizontal stretch by a factor o...
