Problem:
Given the function
y = f(x) = x3

draw the graphs of the functions y = f(x), y = f(x) + 2, y = f(x) - 2, y = f(x + 2), and y = f(x - 2).


Visualization:
Using Derive:

  1. Prepare the program for graphics.
  2. If the first menu item is Algebra then press .
  3. Press for Author.
  4. Enter the function
    f(x) := x^3
  5. Press twice to get the graph.
  6. Press twice and enter
    f(x) + 2
  7. Again press twice to get the graph.
  8. Press twice and enter
    f(x) - 2
  9. Press twice to get the graph.
  10. Press twice and enter
    f(x-2)
  11. Press twice to get the graph.
  12. Press twice and enter
    f(x+2)
  13. Press twice to get the graph.
