Hello all, I need some help to clear my doubts.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Why does a horizontal translation (f(x + c)) move to the left if c is positive?

Can someone graphically explain what effect a stretch and compression (vertical and horizontal) has on the original parent function?

Similar to the first question, why does f(ax) actually stretch by a factor of 1/a instead of a?

Thanks, I might have more questions later.
