    When you have a function with multiple transformations ( e.g. f(x)=3e^(-2x)+4) in what order do you do the transformations?

    Thanks!

    It's BIDMAS really. Start with the power - (draw your graph of e^x, stretch up by factor 2, then reflect in y axis).

    Then move on to the multiplier - stretch the graph up by factor 3. remember to move your y intercept and asymptotes.

    Finally, add 4 - move the graph up by 4.

    best of luck dude.

    Thanks, does that rule apply to all transformations?
