1. I'm unsure what would look like. I know is the translation by (-a, 0) and + a is the translation by (0, a), but would that mean is the same as af(x) (stretching of the SF a in the y direction)? If someone could show me how I could stretch this curve (or what it looks like) it'd be much appreciated
2. type it into wolfram alpha together with and the pattern will become clear

Exactly, the larger the number on top, the further away from both axes.
