What did you find for the value of k? Does anyone remember?
I got 5 somehow but I'm not sure how or if it's right lol
10. (Original post by goofyygoober)
What is the original function for x?
Is it (x^2+9)^1/2 or (x^2+1)^1/2?
(X^2 +9)^1/2 was the original and was transformed into 3(x^2 + 1)^1/2
11. 1b is -2 mate

(X^2 +9)^1/2 was the original and was transformed into 3(x^2 + 1)^1/2
then stretch in x-direction by sf 1/3 is correct
