Streches Part 1
- Peter Sassman
This applet has 5 different functions. Your goals, will be to see how the function f(x) is transformed, when going to p*f(x), for p>0. You can move slider "p", and push "Switch Function" to cycle through the 5 available functions. Try it out, and then answer the questions below.
This type of transformation, is called stretches. Question 1: Using the word stretch, describe the effect of "p", when y=f(x) is transformed to y=p*f(x). Be specific! Question 2: Discuss the differences when p>1 and when p<1.
