**Vertical Translation**

### What is horizontal and vertical translation?

A vertical shift moves the graph up or down. These are the two types of vertical translation. The second type of translation is horizontal translation. A horizontal shift moves the graph left or right.

### How does a function translate vertically and horizontally here?

Important points to remember

- A translation is a function that moves any point by a constant distance in a certain direction.
- A vertical translation is generally given by the equation y = f (x) + b y = f (x) + b.
- A horizontal translation is generally given by the equation y = f (x - a) y = f (x - a).

What is the vertical translation of a function? The vertical translation of a graph is the movement of the base graph up or down in the direction of the y axis. A graph translates k units vertically by moving each point on the graph vertically.

### And what does horizontal translation mean?

In functional images, a horizontal translation is a transformation that leads to a graph that corresponds to the shift of the base graph left or right in the direction of the x axis. A graph is translated horizontally by k units by moving each point on the graph horizontally by k units.

### What is the rule of translation?

Translation Definition Translation is a term used in geometry to describe a feature that moves an object a certain distance. Otherwise the object does not change. It is not rotated, mirrored, enlarged or reduced. During a translation, each point of the object must be moved in the same direction and the same distance.

### What is the horizontal offset in a function?

Horizontal offsets are changes that affect the input (x) axis values and move the function left or right. Combining the two types of offset shifts the graph of a function up or down and to the left or right.

### How do I know if a translation is vertical or horizontal?

The rule for horizontal translations: if y = f (x), y = f (xh) gives a vertical translation. The h translation shifts the graph to the left when h is a positive value and to the right when h is a negative value.

### How to collapse a function horizontally?

In mathematical terms, you can stretch or compress a function horizontally by multiplying x by a number before other operations. To stretch the function, multiply by a fraction between 0 and 1. To compress the function, multiply by a number greater than 1.

### How do I know if it is a stretch or a compression?

When you multiply a function by a positive a, collapse or expand the graph vertically. With 0

1 there is vertical expansion.### What is a horizontal stretch?

A horizontal stroke is the elongation of the graph away from the y axis. With horizontal compression (or contraction) the graph is compressed with respect to the y axis. • if k> 1, the graph of y = f (k • x), the graph of f (x) is reduced horizontally (or compressed) by dividing each of its x coordinates by k.### What is vertical reflection?

Vertical reflection. A reflection in which the silhouette of an airplane tilts vertically. Note: A vertical mirror has a horizontal mirror axis. Take a look too. Horizontal reflection.### What is vertical expansion?

Vertical extension. Introduction: Multiplication of the scale factor by the y coordinate to transform a figure is called vertical expansion. The extension can increase or decrease. Using the scale factor for horizontal expansion and vertical expansion is different.### How do you move a plate horizontally?

If b is positive the scale goes up, if b is negative it decreases. We can also translate the parabola horizontally. The function y = (x - a) 2 has a graph that looks like the standard parabola with the vertex shifted by one unit along the x axis. The vertex is therefore in (a, 0).### How does a graphic stretch?

To expand or shrink the graph in the y direction, multiply or divide the output by a constant. 2f (x) is stretched by a factor of 2 in the y direction and f (x) is stretched by a factor of 2 (or stretched by a factor) in the y direction. Here are the graphs of y = f (x), y = 2f (x) and y = x.### How would you describe the translation function?

A translation is a type of transformation in which each point on a figure moves the same distance in the same direction. Translations are often called slides. You can describe a translation with words that move 3 and more than 5 to the left or with a notation.**Vertical Translation**
