  1. I did this using transformations. I’ve simplified the equations to the following (from left to right):

    f(x) = -(x+6)^2 + 4
    g(x) = 0.8f(1.25x – 3)
    h(x) = 0.8g(1.25x – 3)
    k(x) = 0.8k(1.25x – 3)

    It’s interesting to see that each iteration was the same transformation. I wish I would have realized that before I spent a lot of time figuring this one out. 🙂
