# Chapter 2, Functions - Section 2.6 - Transformations of Functions - 2.6 Exercises: 32

Refer to the blue graph below.

#### Work Step by Step

RECALL: The function $y=f(x)+c$ involves a vertical shift of $c$ units upward of the parent function $f(x)$ when $c \gt 0$. The given function is in the same format as the equation above, and has $c=1$. This means that the graph of $y=\sqrt{x}+1$ involves a vertical shift of $1$ unit upward of the parent function $y=\sqrt{x}$ Thus, to graph the given function: (1) Graph the parent function $y=\sqrt{x}$ . (Refer to the red graph in the attached image below) (2) Shift the parent function 1 unit upward. (Refer to the blue graph in the attached image above.)
