The graph of $f\left(x\right)$`f`(`x`) and $g\left(x\right)=f\left(x-k\right)-j$`g`(`x`)=`f`(`x`−`k`)−`j` are displayed on the same set of axes in grey and black respectively.

Consider the graphs of $y=\sin x$`y`=`s``i``n``x` and $y=5\sin\left(x+\left(\left(-60\right)\right)\right)$`y`=5`s``i``n`(`x`+((−60))).

Consider the graphs of $y=\cos x$`y`=`c``o``s``x` and $y=2\cos\left(x+45^\circ\right)$`y`=2`c``o``s`(`x`+45°).

The graph of $y=\sin x$`y`=`s``i``n``x` has been transformed into the graph of $y=\sin\left(x+\left(\left(-45\right)\right)\right)-2$`y`=`s``i``n`(`x`+((−45)))−2.
