CH1 Graphing Functions

The graphing **function** I used is f(x)=|x|. When you are graphing this you start at point (0,0). If you want to move the function left or right on the **x-axis**, it is called a **transformation. **And if you want to move the function up or down on the **y-axis**, it is called a **translation. **For example: I want to graph f(x)=|x|+5. This would be a translation because the function moved 5 places **vertically**. Another example is if I wanted to graph f(x)=|x+8|. this would be a transformation, because the function moved 8 places **horizontally**. When you want to graph **refections** there will always be a negative sign(-) before the absolute value sign(|x|). This reflects the function across the x-axis.
