(1) Multiplication versus Addition: A and B are being multiplied while C and D are being added (or subtracted). Multiplying changes the SHAPE or ORIENTATION of the graph. Such transformations are called Dilations or Reflections (respectively). Adding changes the LOCATION of the graph. Such transformations are called Translations (or Shifts). Like the rules of your Dear Aunt Sally, when sketching a new graph by a sequence of successive transformations, multiplication transformations must be done before addition transformations. If you understand the sequence of transformations, you should be able to sketch transformations in a single step without going through the transformations. (2) Inside verses Outside: B and C are on the inside of the parent function while A and D are on the outside of the function. Changes to the inside of the function affect the x- values, or the function’s inputs. This means the horizontal nature of the graph will change, either dilated, reflected, or shifted. Changes to the outside of the function will affect the y- values, or the function’s outputs. This means the vertical nature of the graph will change, either dilated, reflected, or shifted. ***As a rule of thumb, inside changes are OPPOSITE of what they immediately appear to be, while outside changes are EXACTLY as you would suspect. We will see this soon in an example, and if you’d like, I can even show you why.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
