It is the x that has changed. I mean x has been repleaced with 9.2x so it is a horizontal compression.

You even have a hint here. The word compression is used. Compressions imply smaller. Which imples a number between 0 and 1.

Anyway multiplying x by 9.2 compresses the graph by 1/9.2 = 5/46

5/46 is a approximately 0.11 I tell you this so you can understand the graph.

You can see that (1,0) has compressed to (0.11,0)
