transformations of graphs equation question ????? watch

1. if the equation of f (x) is (x+3)^2 (x-1) then whats the equation of the graph 3f (x) and f (2x)? for the first would you times the whole equation by three and for the second would you times wherever x is by 2 or 0.5? thanks

Question is ill-posed. 3f(x) is not a "graph".

But anyway, yes 3f(x) is well, 3 multiplied by f(x). So you take f(x) and multiply it by 3.

f(2x) is replacing every occurence of x by 2x.
