I guess x is right and y is up final x = initial x + change in x final y = initial y + change in y beginning x = -2 moves one right -2 + 1 = -1 beginning y = -5 moves 3 up -5 + 3 = -2 b) (-1 , -2)

f(f(x)] = p(px+q) + q f[f(f(x)) = p[p(px+q) + q] + q = p^2(px+q) + pq + q p^3 x + p^2 q + pq + q = 8 x + 21 = (p^3-8)x + p^2 q + pq + q = 21 this can not be a function of x or it would not be constant 21 so p^3-8 = 0 p = 2 4 q + 2q + q = 21 q = 3
