Megan said that if $a>1$ and $g(x)=\frac{1}{a} \mathrm{f}(x),$ then the graph of $\mathrm{f}(x)$ is the graph of $\mathrm{g}(x)$ stretched vertically by the factor $a$ . Do you agree with Megan? Explain why or why not.

yes

for this question. We want to see that if a is greater than one with G of X, which equals one over a F of X will be stretched by a factor. A. So the easiest way to solve this is to multiply a by both sides. So have a times G of X equals F of X. Therefore, we can see the G of X and F of X equal, except the only difference is that G of X of being multiplied by a. So, therefore, Megan's assumption is correct.
