5-53.

For the equation $y=−(x+1)^3+2$:

1. Draw a graph.

This is the graph of a cubic function that has been reflected vertically. Its locator point is at $(−1,2)$.

2. Use your graph to estimate the solution to $−3=−(x+1)^3+2$.

Estimate the coordinates of the point where the line $y=−3$ crosses the equation $y=−(x+1)^3+2$.
