# How do you graph y= sqrt x +5?

Aug 24, 2017

With a $c$-value of $5$, the function translates $5$ units up.

#### Explanation:

This is very simple.

The only difference is the $c$-value.

This value controls the vertical translation of the function. With a $5$ value, the function translates $5$ units up.

Thus, we get this:

It's hard to read because I don't know how to do it on the Socratic system so I used Desmos Graphing Calculator.

The red line is the function: $f \left(x\right) = \sqrt{x} + 5$.

Hope this helps :)
