# Transformations of functions: Horizontal translations - Relations and Functions

### Transformations of functions: Horizontal translations

Horizontal translations refer to movements of a graph of a function horizontally along the x-axis by changing the x values. So, if y = f(x), then y = (x –h) results in a horizontal shift. If h > 0, then the graph shifts h units to the right; while If h < 0, then the graph shifts h units to the right.
