To determine

## To graph: The following function with the help of the transformation:   y=tan2x

Expert Solution

### Explanation of Solution

Given information:

y=tan2x

Graph: Graph 1: y=tanx Graph 2: y=tan2x

Interpretation:

Need to draw a first graph of the function y=tanx as shown by the graph 1. Now, the given function y=tan2x is in form of the y=f(xc) . It means that need to shift the graph by y=f(cx) units on the right side or the graph of y=f(x) by a factor of c is shifted.

So compress horizontally the graph y=tanx the factor of 2 is used. It is shown by graph 2.
