Thank you, but I'm still a little confused. Why "do I have to do -1 so -x = -(-1) = +1 = 1"? Shouldn't the x correspondence of y = f(x) be (1)/-1 = -1 according to the correspondence equation?

"The point (1,8) is on the graph y=f(x). Find the corresponding coordinates of this point on each of the following graphs: ... c) y= -2f(-x)-7." The textbook answer is (-1,9). I don't understand how they got this answer. The only way that that would make sense is if the corresponding y coo...

My textbook asks me to graph out two equations: x^2+y^2=25 and y=sqrt(-x^2+25) I think that algebraically these are identical. In the solutions, the text shows two different graphs. The text says that the first equation fails the vertical line test, because its graph is essentially a circle. However...
