vertical translation

y=f(x) >>> y=f(x) +k

horizontal translation

y=f(x) >>> y=f(x-h)

vertical stretch

y=f(x) >>> y=af(x)

If a>1, the graph is stretched by "a"

If a>1, the graph is stretched by "a"

vertical compression

y=f(x) >>> y=af(x)

If 0<a<1, the graph is compressed by a factor of a

If 0<a<1, the graph is compressed by a factor of a

horizontal stretch

y=f(x) >>> y=f(bx)

If 0<b<1, the graph is stretched by a factor of 1/b

If 0<b<1, the graph is stretched by a factor of 1/b

horizontal compression

y=f(x) >>> y=f(bx)

If b>1, the graph is compressed by a factor of 1/b

If b>1, the graph is compressed by a factor of 1/b

reflection across y axis

y=f(x) >>> y=f(-x)

reflection across x axis

y=f(x) >>> y= -f(x)
