# How do you translate a graph up or down?

You can translate any function,

#y=f(x-h)+k# or

#y-k=f(x-h)#

If

If

If

If

Here is an example:

#f(x)=x^2+2x#

If we want to translate this up 4 units, then we have:

#y=f(x)+4#

#y=x^2+2x+4#

If we have a different example:

#f(x)=1/x#

#y=f(x)+4#

#y=1/x+4#

It still works!
