x^3 is the same as 1/x^3

so 2(1/x^3)=2/x^3

I have to create a horizontal function coming up with the points

so in other words i can plug 0 in for x and find my own point?

so if x = 1 y = 2

2=2/(1a)^3
2=2/1a^3
2(1a^3)=2
1a^3=1
a^3=0
a=0
which this would not change the equation, not having a point given confuses me >.<

wait wait
ok, I'm confused now too without an point given. Ok so example : f(X)= 4^3x is horizontal equation. How would that be solved?

so a agaon would = 0

meaning it would touch the line?


ChrisV

meaning the new equation which would be y=2(xa)^3 would not be a change
