Let's look at the parent function,

graph{y = sqrtx}

Now let's shift it to the right by

graph{y = sqrt(x-4}

Now we can stretch the graph by a factor of

graph{y = 2sqrt(x-4)}

And now we deal with the negative sign. This flips the graph across the

graph{y=-2sqrt(x-4)}

There we go! We took the parent graph,
