## How do you transform a function on a graph?

**5 Steps To Graph Function Transformations In Algebra**

- Reflect Over X-Axis or Y-Axis.
- Shift (Translate) Vertically or Horizontally.
- Vertical and Horizontal Stretches/Compressions.
- Plug in a couple of your coordinates into the parent function to double check your work.

## How does a function work?

In mathematics, a function is **a relation between a set of inputs and a set of permissible outputs**. Functions have the property that each input is related to exactly one output. For example, in the function f(x)=x2 f ( x ) = x 2 any input for x will give one output only. … We write the function as:f(−3)=9 f ( − 3 ) = 9 .

## How do you describe transformations?

A translation moves a shape up, down or from side to side but it does not change its appearance in any other way. Translation is an example of a transformation. A transformation is **a way of changing the size or position of a shape**. Every point in the shape is translated the same distance in the same direction.

## What are transformations in math?

In mathematics, a transformation is a function f (usually with some geometrical underpinning) **that maps a set X to itself, i.e. f : X → X**. … A transformation can be an invertible function from a set X to itself, or from X to another set Y.

## What is transformation equation in physics?

By The Editors of Encyclopaedia Britannica | View Edit History. Galilean transformations, also called Newtonian transformations, set of equations in classical physics that relate **the space** and time coordinates of two systems moving at a constant velocity relative to each other.
