Given the function f(x) = x3 + x2 − 2x + 1, what is the resulting function when f(x) is shifted to the left 1 unit?

    f(x - h) will shift the function to the right by h units. Your function shifts left by 1, so h = -1. In other words you need to find f(x + 1).

    Is it x3+x2-2x+2?

    no. you need to replace every x with x + 1. \[f(x+1)=(x+1)^3+(x+1)^2-2(x+1)+1\]

    Calculate the average rate of change for the function f(x) = x4 + 3x3 − 5x2 + 2x − 2, from x = −1 to x = 1.

    \[roc=\frac{ f(1)-f(-1) }{ 1-(-1) }\]

    just plug in 1 and -1 for x to get f(1) and f(-1)
