Vertical Compressions & Stretches To obtain the graph of y = af(x), multiply each y-coordinate of y = f(x) by a. Case I: |a| > 0, stretch the graph of f vertically. Case II: 0 < |a| < 1, compress the graph of f vertically. If a<0, the graph is reflected about the x-axis. Htm.gif Vertical Compressions & Stretches
