How do you graph the following logs?

f(x)=log5 (x-2)

f(x)=log5 x-2

f(x)= log5 x

f(x)=log5 (x+2)

use f(x)= log_{5} x as your reference graph.

You should know what your standard log function graph looks like

If you translate the reference graph 2 units to the right, you get the first equation

If you translate the reference graph 2 units to the left, you get the last equation

If you translate the reference graph 2 units downwards, you get the second equation
