RECALL: The function $y=f(-x)$ involves a reflection about the $y$-axis of the parent function $f(x)$. The parent function of the given function is $y=\sqrt[4]{x}$. The graph of the given function involves a reflection about the y-axis of the parent function $y=\sqrt[4]{x}$. Thus, to graph the given function: (1) Graph the parent function $y=\sqrt[4]{x}$ . (Refer to the red graph in the attached image below) (2) Reflect the parent function's graph about the y-axis. This can be done by changing each x-coordinate of the points of the parent function to its opposite sign while keeping the value of the y-coordinate of each point.a (Refer to the blue graph in the attached image above.)
