Q:
# 100 POINTS PLUS BRAINLIEST!!!!! Select the correct answer from each drop-down menu.Consider the function f(x) = 3x + 1 and the graph of the function g(x) shown below.The graph g(x) is the graph of f(x) translated (5, 3, 2) units (down, left, up, right) , and g(x) = f(x)+3, f(x)+2, f(x)-5 f(x-2) f(x-3) f(x+5)

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:Translation of 2 units to the rightg(x) = f(x-2)Step-by-step explanation:Given the original function [tex]f(x)=3x+1[/tex], we can get the function plotted by translating the graph 2 units to the right.As seen in the attached image, the original function f(x) is shown in orange, while the translation 2 units to the right is the function in blue. Notice that in the original function the crossing of the x-axis occurs at x = -1/3, and translating the function to the right 2 units moves the crossing two full units to the right, making it now cross the x-axis at x = 5/3Such translation in 2 units to the right corresponds to a subtraction of 2 units from the x-variable in the original functional expression: [tex]g(x)=f(x-2)g(x)=3(x-2)+1[/tex]
