I am unsure with this one as well. Thanks for helping me!

Let's write

 

y = 5^(x + 1)           we wnat to get x by itself and then "swap"  x and y

 

In log form we have

 

log 5 (y)  = x + 1       subtract 1 form  both sides

 

log 5 (y) - 1  = x     "swap" x and y

 

log 5 (x)  - 1  = y       this is the inverse   and we can write

 

g(x)  = log 5 (x)  - 1    [ this goes in the first blank ]

 

The graph of the exponential function is a shift of  1 unit   to the left

 

The graph of the log function  is a shift  1 unit down from its parent function

for the first 1 theres two options that are very similar, would you need the parenetheses around (x+1) or no?

No  parentheses  around the "1"

 

g(x) = log 5  ( x - 1)  is a shift of the parnet unit to the right by one unit

 

g(x)  =log 5 (x)   - 1   is a shift of  the parent function down one unit

 

We want the second one.....
