It has to do with width on the x value. How do I figure out what the denominator should be based on the image above?

It's to do with height, not width, really. Like the description said, it was compressed vertically. Look at the ycoordinates of the vertices of f(x) and g(x) (i.e. the values of f(2) and g(2)), and note their relationship.
