Can you please explain it in a different way?

Determine if reversing the order of the following two transformations can produce a different result. vertical shrink?; horizontal shift

The result of a vertical shrink followed by a horizonta shift would most naturally be denoted by a. f(-x+h) b. -f(x)+k c. -f(x+h) d. f(-(x+h)) e. -(f(x)+k) f. A(f(x)+k) g. Af(x)+k h. Af(x+h). The result of a horizontal shift followed by a vertical shrink would most naturally be denoted by a. A(f(x)+k) b. -f(x+h) c. -f(x)+k d. f(-x)+k e. Af(x+h) f. -(f(x)+k) g. f(-x+h) h. Af(x)+k i. f(-(x+h)).

Therefore, reversing the order a. may b. does not change the final result.
