find the function that is finally graphed after the following transformations are applied to the graph of y=sqrt x in the order listed.
1. relected about the xaxis
2. shift down 9 units
3. shift left 2 units
y=

1. y = √x
2. y = √x  9
3. y = √(x+2)  9 
The answer is 3. Since the
y = √(x+2)  9
() means reflect by xaxis
9 means 9 units down
+2 means shift left 2 units
The sign makes a difference
For shift if its negative it shift right and positive left.
