1 6 CHAPTER Analsis of Graphs of Functions. STRETCHING, SHRINKING, AND REFLECTING GRAPHS Vertical Stretching Vertical Shrinking Reflecting Across an Ais Combining Transformations of Graphs In the previous section, we saw how adding or subtracting a constant can cause a vertical or horizontal shift. Now we will see how multipling b a constant alters the graph of a function. Vertical Stretching TECHNOLOGY NOTE B defining Y as directed in parts A, B, and C, and defining Y, Y, and Y 4 as shown here, ou can minimize our kestrokes. (These graphs will not appear unless Y is defined.) = f() = c f(), c > FIGURE 8 FOR DISCUSSION In each group, we give four related functions. Graph the four functions in the first group (Group A), and then answer the questions regarding those functions. Repeat the process for Group B and Group C. Use the window specified for each group. A B C 5, 5 b 5, 5, 5 b 5,, b, How does the graph of compare to the graph of?. How does the graph of compare to the graph of?. How does the graph of 4 compare to the graph of? 4. If we choose c 4, how do ou think the graph of 5 c would compare to the graph of 4? Provide support b choosing such a value of c. In each group of functions in the preceding activit, we started with a basic function and observed how the graphs of functions of the form c compared with the graph of for positive values of c that began at and became progressivel larger. In each case, we obtained a vertical stretch of the graph of the basic function with which we started. These observations can be generalized to an function. Vertical Stretching of the Graph of a Function If c, the graph of c f is obtained b verticall stretching the graph of f b a factor of c. In general, the larger the value of c, the greater the stretch. In Figure 8, we graphicall interpret the statement above. EXAMPLE Recognizing Vertical Stretches Figure 9 shows the graphs of four functions. The graph labeled is that of the function defined b f. The other three functions,,, and 4, are defined as follows, but not necessaril in the given order:.4,., and 4..

2 . Stretching, Shrinking, and Reflecting Graphs 7 Determine the correct equation for each graph. 4 5 = f() = FIGURE 9 Solution The values of c here are.4,., and 4.. The vertical heights of the points with the same -coordinates of the three graphs will correspond to the magnitudes of these c values. Thus, the graph just above will be that of.4, the highest graph will be that of 4., and the graph of. will lie between the others. Therefore, If we were to trace to an point on the graph of and then move to the other graphs one b one, we would see that the -values of the points would be multiplied b the appropriate values of c. You ma wish to eperiment with our calculator in this wa. Vertical Shrinking 4.,.4, and 4.. TECHNOLOGY NOTE You can use a screen such as this to minimize our kestrokes in parts A, B, and C. Again, Y must be defined in order to obtain the other graphs. FOR DISCUSSION This discussion parallels the one given earlier in this section. Follow the same general directions. (Note: The fractions 4,, and 4 ma be entered as their decimal equivalents when plotting the graphs.) A B C 5, 5 b 5, 5, 5 b, 5, b, How does the graph of compare to the graph of?. How does the graph of compare to the graph of?. How does the graph of 4 compare to the graph of? 4. If we choose c 4, how do ou think the graph of 5 c would compare to the graph of 4? Provide support b choosing such a value of c. In this For Discussion activit, we began with a basic function and observed the graphs of c, as we chose progressivel smaller values of c, with c. In each case, the graph of was verticall shrunk (or compressed). These observations can also be generalized to an function.

3 8 CHAPTER Analsis of Graphs of Functions = f() Vertical Shrinking of the Graph of a Function If c, the graph of c f is obtained b verticall shrinking the graph of f b a factor of c. In general, the smaller the value of c, the greater the shrink. = c f(), < c < FIGURE TECHNOLOGY NOTE Figure shows a graphical interpretation of vertical shrinking. EXAMPLE Recognizing Vertical Shrinks Figure shows the graphs of four functions. The graph labeled is that of the function defined b f. The other three functions,,, and 4, are defined as follows, but not necessaril in the given order:.5,., and.. Determine the correct equation for each graph. = f() = 4 This method of defining Y and Y using a list of coefficients in Y will allow ou to duplicate Figure. TECHNOLOGY NOTE B defining Y as directed in parts A, B, C, and D, and defining Y as shown here, ou can minimize our kestrokes FIGURE Solution The smaller the positive value of c, where c, the more compressed toward the -ais the graph will be. Since we have c.5,., and., the function rules must be as follows: Reflecting Across an Ais.,.5, and 4.. We have seen how graphs can be transformed b shifting, stretching, and shrinking. We now eamine how graphs can be reflected across an ais. FOR DISCUSSION In each pair, we give two related functions. Graph f and f in the standard viewing window, and then answer the questions below for each pair. A B C D With respect to the -ais,. how does the graph of compare to the graph of?. how would the graph of compare with the graph of, based on our answer to Item? Confirm our answer b graphing.

4 . Stretching, Shrinking, and Reflecting Graphs 9 TECHNOLOGY NOTE B defining Y as directed in parts E, F, and G, and defining Y as shown here (using function notation), ou can minimize our kestrokes. Again, in each pair, we give two related functions. Graph f and f in the standard viewing window, and then answer the questions below for each pair. E F G 4 4 With respect to the -ais,. how does the graph of compare to the graph of? 4. how would the graph of compare with the graph of, based on our answer to Item? Confirm our answer b graphing. The results of the preceding discussion can be formall summarized. Reflecting the Graph of a Function Across an Ais For a function defined b f, (a) the graph of f is a reflection of the graph of f across the -ais. (b) the graph of f is a reflection of the graph of f across the -ais. Figure shows how the reflections just described affect the graph of a function in general. (, 6) (7, 6) = f() ( 4, ) (, ) FIGURE (, ) ( 4, ) = f() (, 6) (7, 6) FIGURE 4 = f () = f () = f ( ) b (a, b) b ( a, b) (a, b) a a a (a, b) b = f () Reflection across the -ais Reflection across the -ais (a) (b) FIGURE EXAMPLE Appling Reflections across Aes Figure shows the graph of a function f. (a) Sketch the graph of f. (b) Sketch the graph of f. Solution (a) We must reflect the graph across the -ais. This means that if a point a, b lies on the graph of f, then the point a, b must lie on the graph of f. Using the labeled points, we find the graph of f in Figure 4.

5 CHAPTER Analsis of Graphs of Functions ( 7, 6) (, 6) = f( ) (4, ) (, ) FIGURE 5 (b) Here we must reflect the graph across the -ais, meaning that if a point a, b lies on the graph of f, then the point a, b must lie on the graph of f. Thus, we obtain the graph of f as shown in Figure 5. To illustrate reflections on calculator-generated graphs, observe Figure 6. Figure 6(a) shows that Y has been defined b 6 and Y Y, which means that the graph of Y is a reflection across the -ais. Figure 6(b) shows the graphs of Y and Y, confirming this fact. Notice that Y Y, indicating that the graph of is a reflection across the -ais. This is confirmed b Figure 6(c). Y Y = Y = Y = Y ( ) Y = Y (a) (b) FIGURE 6 (c) What Went WRONG? To see how negative values of a affect the graph of a, a student entered three functions Y, Y, and Y as in the accompaning screen. The calculator graphed the first two as shown, but gave a snta error when it attempted to graph the third. What Went Wrong? graph for? What must the student do in order to obtain the desired Answers to What Went Wrong? The student used a subtraction sign to define Y rather than a negative sign. Notice the difference between the signs in Y and as compared to Y. The student must re-enter using a negative sign. Y Y

6 . Stretching, Shrinking, and Reflecting Graphs = = FIGURE 7 Combining Transformations of Graphs The graphs of and are shown in the same viewing window in Figure 7. In terms of the tpes of transformations we have studied, the graph of is obtained b verticall stretching the graph of b a factor of and then reflecting across the -ais. Thus, we have a combination of transformations. As ou might epect, we can create an infinite number of functions b verticall stretching or shrinking, shifting upward, downward, left, or right, and reflecting across an ais. The net eample investigates eamples of this tpe of function. In determining the order in which the transformations are made, use the order of operations. EXAMPLE 4 Describing a Combination of Transformations of a Graph (a) Describe how the graph of 4 5 can be obtained b transforming the graph of. Illustrate with a graphing calculator. (b) Give the equation of the function that would be obtained b starting with the graph of, shifting units to the left, verticall shrinking the graph b a factor of, reflecting across the -ais, and shifting the graph 4 units downward, in this order. Illustrate with a graphing calculator. Analtic Solution (a) The presence of 4 in the definition of the function indicates that the graph of must be shifted 4 units to the right. Since the coefficient of 4 is (a negative number with absolute value greater than ), the graph is stretched verticall b a factor of and then reflected across the -ais. Finall, the constant 5 indicates that the graph is shifted upward 5 units. These ideas are summarized below. ➂ Reflect across the -ais. ➁ Stretch b a factor of. ➀ Shift 4 units to the right. 4 5 ➃ Shift 5 units upward. (b) Shifting units to the left means that is transformed to. Verticall shrinking b a factor of means multipling b, and reflecting across the -ais changes to. Finall, shifting 4 units downward means subtracting 4. Putting this all together leads to the equation 4. Graphing Calculator Solution (a) Figure 8 supports the discussion in the analtic solution. FIGURE 8 (b) Figure 9 supports the discussion in the analtic solution. = ( 4) + 5 = + 4 FIGURE 9 = =

7 CHAPTER Analsis of Graphs of Functions CAUTION The order in which the transformations are made is important. If the are made in a different order, a different equation can result. See the diagram that follows. ➀ Stretch b a factor of. ➁ Shift units upward. ➀ Shift units to the left. ➁ Stretch b a factor of.

Figure 4(b) shows that a point on the right side of the transformed graph has coordinates 4,, and thus the slope of this ra is m 4 Thus, the stretch factor is.
