# What are transformations of a function?

It's simple, think of a graph that you know how to graph for example.

we know this is just a straight line. With transformations we will be able to do the following.

- Vertical shift up
- Raise the graph by x units up

- Vertical shift down
- Raise the graph by x units down

- Horizontal shift left
- Shift the graph left by x units

- Horizontal shift right
- Shift the graph right by x units

- Compressing
- Stretching
- Reflection on the x axis
- -

Reflection on the y axis

In that same order this is how it would look like.
