Chapter 2 - Functions and Graphs - Exercise Set 2.5 - Page 282: 16


Graph the points (-1,-3) and (1,3) and connect them with a straight horizontal line.

Work Step by Step

The graph of g(x) is f(x) changed first by horizontally shrinking by 2 (so the line is half as long), then reflected across the x-axis (so all of the y-values are multiplied by -1), and finally shifted vertically downward by 1 unit (so all of the y-values are decreased by 1).
