How To: Stretch, shift & reflect the graph of a square root

Stretch, shift & reflect the graph of a square root

Professor ElvisZap teaches you how to stretch shift and reflect the graph of a square root. A square root function is the opposite of a squared function. You start with y=square root of (x-1) it becomes 0<=x-1. then 1 <=x. You use the graph and solve it as you would for any function using small values first, then you have y=square root of x - 1, the domain 0<=x. This shifted the graph down 1 unit. 0=square root of x - 1, 1=square root of x, 1=x. Then the range is [-1 + infinity). Continue in the same manner for the rest of the equations and remember to practice.
