10-90.

Theodore is trying to model a situation using the equation $f(x) = 3x − 2x^5 + 17$, 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?

What transformation will shift a graph down 5 units?

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