7-27.

Sketch the graph of *y* = log_{3}(*x* + 4) and describe the transformation from its parent graph. Homework Help ✎

Use the log function for the parent graph.

Make a sketch of the graph *y* = log_{3}(*x*). This graph is shifted four units to the left. Move each point on the graph of *y* = log_{3}(*x*) four units to the left. Since the vertical asymptote of the parent graph was *x* = 0, for this graph it should be *x* = −4.
