Homework Help: Reflections and Transformations

  1. Sep 15, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    f(x) = 5 - g(x)
    Do you reflect first, then translate, or translate then reflect?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    So the graph would be translated up 5 units and reflected over the x-axis. Do you translate it up 5 units, then reflect? or vice versa?

    Reflect across the x-axis first, then translate up 5 units.
