Write a function g in terms of f so that the statement is true. The graph of g is a vertical stretch by a factor of 4 of the graph of f. g(x)=

g(x)  =  4 * f(x)

We multiply all the y-values by  4

Here is an example to maybe help you see why this is:

Let's let      $$f(x)=\sqrt{x}$$      and so      $$g(x)=4\sqrt{x}$$

Here is a table of points on the graph of  f(x)  and a graph to go with it:

And here is a table of points on the graph of  g(x)  and a graph to go with it:

Notice that all the y-coordinates of the graph of g(x) are 4 times that of f(x)

We can call this "a vertical strech by a factor of 4"

Here are the two graphs together:
