Select each correct answer.


compress the graph closer to the x-axis

translate the graph to the left  

stretch the graph away from the x-axis

translate the graph to the right

translate the graph down

reflect the graph over the x-axis

translate the graph up

We can identify features of \(g(x)=-2x\sqrt{3}-1\) by looking at the function and interpreting the effects.


The "-1" translates the graph downward one unit.


The "2" stretches the graph away from the x-axis by a factor of 2.


The "-2" indicates that a reflection occurred over the y-axis (although this option is non-existent in the answer choices).
