Cubic graph

George has decided that a distribution of data is cubic, that is it has the general form of a function "f(x)=x^3" if the point on the curve that should be at (0,0) is found at (-3,7) and the point that should be at (1,1) is at (-2,11). What is the equation of the data distribution (hint: sketch f(x)=x^3 and the points (-3,7) and (-2,11). What has been done to the original curve?

Solution Summary

This shows how to manipulate a cubic graph to go through specified points.
