Outline Basic Functions Translations Reﬂections Scaling General Transformations Scaling Suppose y = f (x ) is function and c &gt; 0 is a constant. If c &gt; 1, then the graph of y = cf (x ) is the graph of y = f (x ) stretched vertically by a factor of c . If c &lt; 1, then the graph of y = cf (x ) is the graph of y = f (x ) compressed vertically by a factor of c . If c &gt; 1, then the graph of y = f (cx ) is the graph of 1 y = f (x ) compressed horizontally by a factor of c . If c &lt; 1, then the graph of y = f (cx ) is the graph of 1 y = f (x ) stretched horizontally by a factor of c .

Translated horizontally h units. Reﬂected across the x -axis if a &lt; 0. Scaled vertically by a factor of |a|. Reﬂected across the y -axis if b &lt; 0. 1 Scaled horizontally by a factor of |b| . Outline Basic Functions Translations Reﬂections Scaling General Transformations Multiple Transformations When doing multiple transformations, proceed in the order of operation. In particular, scaling and reﬂecting take precedence over shifts. Example 1 2 3 √ Graph y = 3 x + 1. 2 Graph y = . 1−x Graph y = (2 − 6x )1/3 ....
