Lesson 17: Stretching functions

Identify function transformations

Problem

start color #e84d39, g, end color #e84d39 is a transformation of start color #11accd, f, end color #11accd. The graph below shows start color #11accd, f, end color #11accd as a solid blue line and start color #e84d39, g, end color #e84d39 as a dotted red line.
A parabola labeled f and graph g are on an x y coordinate plane. The x- and y- axes scale by one. Graph f is concave up and has a vertex around (four, three). Graph g is concave down and has a vertex around (four, negative one).
What is the formula of start color #e84d39, g, end color #e84d39 in terms of start color #11accd, f, end color #11accd?
