I'm confused with this function
y= f(-x-4)+6
I have to state what the function is doing, so i know it's a reflection over the y-axis, and you go up six, but with the 4 do i go right or left??
Thanks for any help!

    your function notation is meaningless. What is f(z)?

    You have to have a function defined before you can state what it does?

    I know but it's not a "real" function or anything we have to graph, f(x) can be anything..so say it's f(x)=x^2 then it would be y=(-x^2-4)+6
    so is it left 4 or right 4?
