For this graph, I'm not sure exactly how the equation y = (x³+1)² is transformed to get the graph (x³/8 + 1)². I said that it was just horizontally stretched by a factor of 8 but there has been a change in its intercepts. Also, not all the x-coordinates are changed by a factor of 8. Can anyone help clarify this for me? Thanks in advance
