In this section I show you translations of the trigonometric graphs of f(x) = sin(x), cos(x) and tan(x) relative to the y-axis and then the x-axis.

Translations parallel to the y-axis:

You should already be familiar with the transformation y = f(x) ± a

Translations parallel to the x-axis:

You should already be familiar with the transformation y = f(x ± a)
