y = f(x) + c Vertical shift c units up
y = f(x) - c Vertical shift c units down
y = f(x + c) Horizontal shift c units to the left
y = f(x - c) Horizontal shift c units to the right
y = -f(x) Reflection over x-axis
y = f(-x) Reflection over y-axis
y = cf(x) vertical stretch/shrink, when c > 1 it's stretch, (x,y)--> (x,y*c)
y = f(cx) horizontal stretch/shrink, c < 1 it's shrink, (x,y)--> (x*(1/c),y)
a^0 = 1
