State the parent function that must be transformed to create the graph of y=2/3x^3 - 2. Describe the transformation that must be applied to the parent function.

Parent function= x^3

I don't know the transformation...

• precalculus -

scale y by 2/3 and then shift downward 2 units.

if f = x^3
and g-k = a(x-h)^3

shift the graph h units to the right
scale y by a factor of a
shift the graph up by k units
