The function y = x becomes y= -2(3x+2)-5. Describe the order in which the transformations would take place.

1. The function is stretched vertically by a factor of 2

2. The function is compressed horizontally by a factor of 1/3

3. The graph is reflected into the x-axis

4. The graph translates 2 units to the left

5. The graph translates downwards 5 units

Is that correct?

The function is compressed horizontally by a factor of 1/3 (or stretched vertically by 3)

y = 3 x

Translates 2 units up

y = 3x+2

reflects over x axis

y = -(3x+2)

stretch vertically by 2

y = -2(3x+2)

down 5
