test 9 section 3 number 18
This one is all about how translations (shifts up, down, left, or right) work in function notation. So, a quick review. If you know what any random function looks like, then you know:
- will shift that function UP one unit
- will shift that function DOWN one unit
- will shift that function LEFT one unit
- will shift that function RIGHT one unit
In this question, we’re shown the graph of , and then we’re told that . In other words, the graph of will be the same as the graph of , just shifted up 6 units.
We can see from the graph we’re given that the maximum value of function is 2, so the maximum value of function will be 6 higher than 2: 8!
