10-90.

Theodore is trying to model a situation using the equation *f*(*x*) = 3* ^{x}* − 2

*x*

^{5}+ 17, but he needs it to be 5 units lower on the graph. How should he change

*f*(

*x*) so that it is a better fit for his model? Homework Help ✎

What transformation will shift a graph down 5 units?

*f*(*x*) − 5 will shift the graph 5 units lower.
