    to get f(x+h), just replace all 'x' in f(x) by 'x+h'

    example if f(x) = x^2+10 x f(x+h) will be (x+h)^2 + 10(x+h) note that i have replaced ALL 'x' in f(x) by x+h

    so, can you try replacing 'x' in f(x) by x+h for your question, x^3+4x ?

    \[f(\color{#C00}x) = \color{#C00}x^3 + 4\color{#c00}x \\ f(\color{#C00}h) = \color{#c00}h^3 + 4 \color{#C00}h \\ \vdots \]

    wherever you 'see' x, just replace it by 'x+h' one more try , maybe ?

    use \((a+b)^3 = a^3+3a^2b+3ab^2+b^3\)

    Just replace \(a\) by \(x\) and \(b\) by \(h\).

    you'll have only 4 terms from that formula, right ?

    Four completely simplified terms.

    \((a+b)^3 = a^3+3a^2b+3ab^2+b^3\) from the last term b^3 of above

    so, you have (x+h)^3+4(x+h) =x^3+3x^2h+3xh^2+h^3 +4x+4h i think no further simplification possible, thats your final answer...

    (x+h) can be factored, but not required...
