Algebra

I need help with this question: write an equation g(x) for when the parent function f(x) = |x| is translated one unit to the left and two units up, opening downwards, and vertically stretched by a scale factor of 5. Thank you!!!

  1. original is a V with vertex at origin

    translate left:
    y = |x+1| (that is 0 at -1)

    translate up
    y = 2 + |x+1|

    stretch
    y = 2 + 5|x+1|

    turn upside down
    y = 2 - 5|x+1|

    how would this equation look: y=f(x+3) when y=f(x)= x^2 would it look like so.... x^2(x+3) adam, there's a slight problem with your notation in the expression y = f(x+3). Ordinarily we wouldn't put an expression in place of a
