Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok. so the equation f(x)=x3 also means y=x3. now we need to make a table of x and y. we'll choose integers for x and plug them in to obtain a value for y.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so, lets start with 0. When x = 0. we get y = (0)  3, which gives us y = 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so on the graph, at x = 0, y = 3. so put a point on coordinate (0,3). and you continue to x = 1, x = 2, x =3 for as many points as you want. also do this for negative x values. x = 1, x = 2. you'll soon realize that this is a linear function (straight line). so therefore you don't need to continue forever you just extrapolate the line to fit the graph.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Draw a coordinate plane. Draw the line y = x i.e. a line with slope 1 through the origin (0,0) Move the line from the point (0,0) where the line y = x intersects down to point (0,3) (translation of the graph)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thank you for your time I can't believe I didn't get this the first time the examples in my math book are not nearly as understandable as you guys
