    Exclamation Cubics in the form y= (x-h)^3+k

    a) what is the geometrical significance of h and k in y= (x-h)^3+k. Use technology to assist you to draw sketch graphs of your choice by varying values of h and k.

    What help do you want? You are told exactly what to do and no one can do it for you. There are no "answers" to give. Just graph as you are told and look at the graphs.

    Tear Tessarina,

    I have attached the graphs for you. In the graph which the h values are varied, the topmost curve corresponds to h=0 then h=1 etc. Similarly in the graph which the k values are varied, the topmost curve represents the situation where k=0 then k=1 etc.

    Hope this will help you.

    Hi,
    maybe you'd like to review your "transformations of graphs" chapter

    I am concerned that this question and the other ones similar to it are part of a major assignment you have been given that counts towards your final grade. MHF olicy is to not knowingly help with such questions because they are meant to be your own work.

    Thread closed (you can discuss the matter with me via pm if the situation happens to be different to what I think it is).
