**graph**can be horizontally or

**vertically**scaled by multiplying each or coordinate of the

**graph**by a constant factor. This can be represented in function form as for a

**vertical scaling**, or for a horizontal

**scaling**. A

**graph**is

**vertically**compressed if the values for a given value become smaller.

Accordingly, what is a vertical scale in math?

**Vertical scale**. The **vertical scale** along the side of a graph tell us how much or how many.

Likewise, how do you scale a vertical parabola? **It works this way:**

- If a is positive (a > 0), then the reference parabola is not reflected over the x-axis.
- if a is negative (a < 0), then the reference parabola is reflected across the x-axis.
- The reference parabola is stretched or compressed by the size, or absolute value, of a.

Also know, how do you scale a function?

2 Answers. You can **scale** a **function** horizontally or vertically (in terms of its graph). The first equation you wrote is scaling the graph horizontally. When you **scale** vertically, you get the **function** g(x)=cf(x) which stretches the graph of f vertically by a factor of c.

What is a scale graph?

**Scale**. In simple words, a **scale** is a set of numbers that help to measure or quantify objects. A **scale** on the **graph** shows the way the numbers or pictures are used in data. Let us now move on to a bar **graph**.
