Problem 11 Easy Difficulty

Graph the function by hand, not by plotting points, but by starting with the graph of one of the standard functions given in Section 1.2, and then applying the appropriate transformations.

$ y = x^3 + 1 $


$y=x^{3}+1:$ Start with the graph of $y=x^{3}$ and shift upward 1 unit.

our coolest. A graph y equals x cubed plus one. So let's think about the standard function Y equals X cubed. We know what that looks like. It looks kind of like this. It goes through 00 increasing. So what would happen if we added one to it? We would shift it up one. So we want to draw something with the same shape as the standard graph, but we just want to shift it up one.
