It is given by the equation: y=ln(x) .And the translation is 5 units down.We know that the rule of transformation f(x) = y + k, if k is greater than 0 it moves upwards, or if k is less than 0, moves down.For translation 5 unit, 5 must be less than 0.Number less than 0 are negative numbers.So, we need to add -5 on the function ln(x).So, we get the final equation of five units down asy =ln(x) - 5.
