## To sketch: The rough graph of the function y=(0.5)x−1 use transformations if needed.

Expert Solution

### Explanation of Solution

The standard graph of the function y=(0.5)x is roughly sketched as shown below in Figure 1.

Then, to draw the graph of y=(0.5)x1 , shift the graph y=(0.5)x one unit to the right. Thus, the graph of y=(0.5)x1 is shown below in Figure 2.

Observe that Figure 2 is obtained from Figure 1 in such a way that it is shifted 1 unit to the right.
