    when you have a negative exponent you just drop the value to the denominator

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

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

    i guess thats what you are looking for since you give no further directions

    I am confused because normally for a horizontal translation a point is given

    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?

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

    if you used 2 for x your answer would be different

    y=1/4 so 1/4= 2/(2-a)^3

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

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