 # Transformations of Graphs

Transformation, in mathematics, is a change in the form of a mathematical object without changing the underlying properties of that object. We can perform a transformation on an object by moving it from one place to another on the coordinate plane according to some rules. There are four types of transformations, namely translation, reflection, dilation, and rotation.

The diagram below shows a sketch of the curve with equation $y=\text{g}(x)$. The curve has asymptotes with equations$x=0$ and $y=2$. The curve crosses the $x$-axis at $A(2,0)$ and $C(7,0)$ and has a turning point at $B(4,-2)$. On separate diagrams, sketch the curves with equations

(i)

$y=\left| \text{g}(-x) \right|$,



(i) $y=\left| \text{g}(-x) \right|$,



(ii)

$y=\frac{1}{\text{g}(x)}$.



(ii) $y=\frac{1}{\text{g}(x)}$.



For each curve, state clearly the equations of any asymptotes, the coordinates of any turning points and the coordinates of any points where the curves crosses the $x$- and $y$- axes.

A graph with the equation $y=\text{f}(x)$ undergoes, in succession, the following transformations:

$A$: A translation of $1$ unit in the direction of the positive $x$- axis.
$B$: A stretch parallel to the $x$- axis by factor $\frac{1}{2}$.
$C$: A reflection in the $y$- axis.

The equation of the resulting curve is $y=\frac{2}{2{{x}^{2}}+2x+1}$. Determine the equation $y=\text{f}(x)$.
