Sample Problem

Given that the original function is f(x)=x3 , which of the following is an accurate representation of f(x)= (x+3)3 +1?

 

 

 

 

Solution

The last graph is correct because it accurately reflects f(x)=(x+3)3 +1. The original cubic function

(also a parent function!) should be shifted 3 units to the left and one unit up.
