# Transforming functions

## How to transform the graph of a function?

This depends on the direction you want to transoform. In general, transformations in y-direction are easier than transformations in x-direction, see below.

## How to move a function in y-direction?

Just add the transformation you want to to. This is it. For example, lets move this Graph by units to the top.

The function shall be moved by

5 to up

Graph before the transformation: :
 Dein Browser unterst³tzt den HTML-Canvas-Tag nicht. Hol dir einen neuen. :P
Function after the transformation: Dein Browser unterst³tzt den HTML-Canvas-Tag nicht. Hol dir einen neuen. :P
This is what Mathepower calculated:

Move the graph of by 5 in direction up
Moved function: Simplify the new function: : | add to  ## How to move a function in x-direction?

If you want to move in x-direction, it is more difficult for two reasons:
• You have to replace every x by • and mind the sign: If you want to go in x-direction, replace x by . But if you want to go in the opposite direction, you replace x by .
Here is another example involving the latter function.

The function shall be moved by

2 to the right

Graph before the transformation: :
 Dein Browser unterst³tzt den HTML-Canvas-Tag nicht. Hol dir einen neuen. :P
Function after the transformation: Dein Browser unterst³tzt den HTML-Canvas-Tag nicht. Hol dir einen neuen. :P
This is what Mathepower calculated:

Move the graph of by 2 in direction right :
Replace every x by Moved function: Simplify the new function: : | Apply the higher binomial formula with a= and b=  | Calculate to the power of . | Expand and .  | add to  | add to  | add to  ## How to stretch a function in y-direction?

This is easy, again: Just multiply your whole function by the stretching factor. For example, lets stretch by Factor in y-direction.

The function shall be moved by

2 in y-direction stretched

Graph before the transformation: :
 Dein Browser unterst³tzt den HTML-Canvas-Tag nicht. Hol dir einen neuen. :P
Function after the transformation: Dein Browser unterst³tzt den HTML-Canvas-Tag nicht. Hol dir einen neuen. :P
This is what Mathepower calculated:

Transform the function by 2 in y-direction stretch :
Multiply the function by 2
Stretched function Simplify the new function: : | Expand and . ## How to stretch a function in x-direction?

Again, like moving, stretchig is more difficult: We have to replace every x by (Mind that it is again not the way you may think: Stretching does not mean multiplying by , but dividing by The function shall be moved by

2 in x-direction stretched

Graph before the transformation: :
 Dein Browser unterst³tzt den HTML-Canvas-Tag nicht. Hol dir einen neuen. :P
Function after the transformation: Dein Browser unterst³tzt den HTML-Canvas-Tag nicht. Hol dir einen neuen. :P
This is what Mathepower calculated:

Transform the function by 2 in x-direction stretch :
Replace every x by Stretched function Simplify the new function: : | Extract from the fraction | Solve with the power laws : equals  | Extract from the fraction ## And if I want to move another function?
