It seems that you forgot to load graphics given with the question. So I'm going to draw the graphic myself and then explain the answer.f(x)=x^3+8 is the given function that is created from the parent function f(x)=x^3Graph of x^3 is like the graph of any degree is odd, the function that starts from the bottom and going to the top due to the positive leading coefficient.then there is +8, which means father of the function is shifted 8 units up.You can directly connect some numbers to find points at which f(x)=x^3+8 then join the points to obtain the graph we use the numbers x=-2,-1,0,1,2,...I will show you the calculation for x=-2f(-2)=(-2)^3+8=(-2)(-2)(-2)+8=-8+8=0Hence first point (-2,0)in the same way, you can find more points, then use them to find the final graph, as shown in the attached image.
