Determine the equation of the function that has the indicated transformation applied to it.
f(x)= 3(x+1)^22
reflection across xaxis and stretched vertically by factor of 3

reflection: f(x)>f(x) = 3(x+1)^2  2
3 stretch: f(x)>3f(x) = 3(3(x+1)^2  2)
= 9(x+1)^2  6

oops
(3(x+1)^2  2) = 3(x+1)^2 + 2
then stretch:
9(x+1)^2 + 6
