What Does the Constant 'k' Do to the Graph of f(x)=log(x)+k?

Note:

Translating a logarithmic function vertically can be fun, especially when you know how it's done! This tutorial shows what it takes to shift a logarithmic function up and down!

Background Tutorials

Graph the functions f(x)=√x, f(x)=1/x, f(x)=x3, f(x)= 3√x, f(x)=bx, f(x)=|x|, and f(x)=logb (x) where b is 2, 10, and e, and, when applicable, analyze the key attributes such as domain, range, intercepts, symmetries, asymptotic behavior, and maximum and minimum given an interval

Ever slide something across a table? If so, then you have performed a translation! In this tutorial, learn the definition of translation and see some really neat examples. Take a look!
