(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

For each of the following, identify the base function and describe the transformation(s):

f(x)=-4(3x)^2 + 5

2. Relevant equations

f(x) = -4(3x)^2 + 5

3. The attempt at a solution

Alright so my attempt at figuring out the requested answers are:

Base function = x^2

- has been shifted up 5 units

- has been vertically stretched by 3

- reflected in the x-axis by -4

At this moment I'm really confused on my answer. I have a feeling that there is more to it and that I got a couple of things wrong but I just can't figure out what... could someone please help me out?
