Square Root Function Transformations
If a is negative, there is a reflection across the x axis.
if | a | is greater than one, the graph is stretched vertically.
if | a |is between 0 and 1, the graph is compressed vertically.
if h is positive, the graph is translated h units to the right.
if h is negative, the graph is translated | h | units to the left.
if k is positive, the graph is translated k units up.
if k is negative, the graph is translated | k | units down.
The variable values and transformations are shown in the middle.
On the right, the equation in red represents the parent function and the blue represents the transformed function.
