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 − 1) = x3 − 2x2 − x + 3
f(x + 1) = x3 + 4x2 + 3x + 1
f(x) − 1 = x3 + x2 − 2x
f(x) + 1 = x3 + x2 − 2x + 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Suppose the parabola y = x^2 dw:1443702909019:dw thats how its graphed, now suppose y = x^2 + 1dw:1443702955063:dw so by adding a 1 to the function, the function is moved one spot to the left, see; f(x + 1) = (x + 1)^2 which has a zero only at x = 1 , so in the same way, by substituting (x + 1) into the above function, we can move it one spot to the left
