## mikaa_toxica13 2 years ago can anyone graph y = ax^3 + bx^2 + cx + d

1. mikaa_toxica13

then make constants

2. robinfr93

It'll be same as the graph of x^3. usually we factorize the polynomial and then shift the graph vertically or horizontally accordingly....

i need y = ax^3 + bx^2 + cx + d graphed. that is all. below is the full question. A.Contact your partner if you are choosing to do this project collaboratively. Look at the polynomial below. y = ax3 + bx2 + cx + d Graph this using any graphing technology of your choice. However, replace the variables a, b, c, and d with numbers. For example, you could graph y = 2x3 + 3x2 – x + 2. Observe the graphed outcomes together (or independently if working alone). This is an investigation process to see what types of curves and lines you and your partner can produce with this equation. Special Note: You may make any coefficient zero. This eliminates the variable. For example, if you wanted to make y = 3x2 + 2, a and c would be zero to cancel out the x3 and the x terms

i got this on wiki, is it right ?

:P Let me make this a bit easy for you.. Step 1 Choose constant terms for this polynomial Step 1.5 To do that itll be better if you go for something that make the constant do something like this a*d = b*c then you can factorize them with ease. Step 2 Factorize by taking out an x term or x^2 term for eg. x^2(ax+b)+cx+d note : this only work if you stick with the a*d = b*c method... and thne factorize further.. It'll be correct according to the equation its made from.. Don't waste your time on wikipedia.. get a precalculas book, 'll say go for Pre Calculus by John W Coburn.. Its the most lucid book out there.. I completed it in just 3 days and trust me I'm not a math geek not at all.. It was all kinda new for me!!

well i have no idea how to do any of that. so can u graph it

7. robinfr93

Umm tell you what!! Ever heard of Wolfram Alpha??? If not google it!! Go there and just like you use a google or any other search bar.. type the following Plot ax^3+bx^2+cx+d where a,b,c,d are any random numbers of you choice!! Thats RIGHT!! YOUR CHOICE!!! Copy it down and start understanding things!!

well i dont have time for that. i need help here.

9. robinfr93

Listen lady!! If you can type to reply back you can definitely type buncha alphabets and numbers on another site!!!

10. mikaa_toxica13

not when my computer sucks and i can only go on sites i know are safe. how about U give me the help i came here to get instead of being rude. if your not going to help then jus gtfo

Wow!! First of all get a pair of glasses and a habit of reading!! Nobody is allowed to give or get final answers here!! Its in the terms and condition that you blindly agreed to when you joined the site!! So either try to follow the rules or just fo!!
