suppose the graph of f is given . Describe how the graph of the function can be obtained from the graph of f . Y = 4f ( x + 5 )- 3 .

How would I work this problem?

• math -

I assume you have a graph of f(x) and you want a graph of 4 f(x+5)^-3. Call that new function g(x). I assume you want a value of the new function g(x) at x.

(1) See what the value of f(x) was at x+5, using the graph of f(x)
(2) Raise that f(x+5) value to the -3 power
(3) Multiply the result by 4.
(4) Plot the g(x) point and continue the process with other points.
