QUESTION: A horizontal translation is applied to the graph of y= X^ 3 + 2 so that it will pass through (3, 10) what is the new equation for the graph?
y=(x+a) ^3+ 2
10= (3+ a) ^3 + 2
102= (3+ a) ^3 + 22
8= (3+ a) ^3
Take the cube root of each side...
2= 3a solve for a
So I went like this:
22+a= 3a2+a
a= 1
So the new equation would be? I am unsure which equation do I put it in for?
8= (3+ a) ^3
Take the cube root of each side...
2= 3a solve for a ****Nope, you changed the sign on a. 1=3+a, a=1
The new equation is
y=(x1)^3 +2 This shifts the equation along the horizontal axis to the right.
