## College Algebra (6th Edition)

(Work done in online calculator desmos.com) Let $f(x)=\displaystyle \frac{1}{x^{2}}$ (graph: blue, dashed) $g(x)=\displaystyle \frac{1}{(x+1)^{2}}=f(x+$1$)$ So, the graph of g (red, solid line) is obtained by shifting the graph of $f(x)=\displaystyle \frac{1}{x^{2}}$ to the left by 1 units. (the vertical asymptote also shifts)
