## How do you do transformations of a function?

**The function translation / transformation rules:**

- f (x) + b shifts the function b units upward.
- f (x) – b shifts the function b units downward.
- f (x + b) shifts the function b units to the left.
- f (x – b) shifts the function b units to the right.
- –f (x) reflects the function in the x-axis (that is, upside-down).

## How do you use transformations to graph a function?

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

- Identify The Parent Function. Ernest Wolfe. …
- 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.

One kind of transformation involves **shifting the entire graph of a function up, down, right, or left**. The simplest shift is a vertical shift, moving the graph up or down, because this transformation involves adding a positive or negative constant to the function.

## What are the transformation rules?

Data Transformation Rules are **set of computer instructions that dictate consistent manipulations to transform the structure and semantics of data from source systems to target systems**.

## How do you describe a transformation on a graph?

if k > 0, the graph translates **upward** k units. if k …

Transformations of Function Graphs | |
---|---|

-f (x) | reflect f (x) over the x-axis |

k•f (x) | multiply y-values by k (k > 1 stretch, 0 |

f (kx) | divide x-values by k (k > 1 shrink, 0 |

## 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.
