PLEASE HELP In your lab, a substance's temperature has been observed to follow the function T(x) = (x + 5)3 + 7. The turning point of the graph is where the substance changes from a liquid to a solid. Using complete sentences in your written answer, explain to your fellow scientists how to find the turning point of this function. Hint: The turning point of the graph is similar to the vertex of a quadratic function.

    the graph of this function will be a translation of the graph of T(x) = x^3 This has a point of inflection at (0,0) It looks like |dw:1441991355735:dw|

    the turning point is at the origin your function will be the same shape as x^3 but will move 5 units to the left and 7 units vertically upwards

    the temperature will be on y axis and the turning point corresponds to the solidifying of the liquid
