# If the graph #y=x^3 + 5# is reflected in the x axis what is the new equation?

the points reflected in the x axis have opposite y-coordinates, or

x'=x and y'=-y

so the new equation is

that's

If the graph ( y = x^3 + 5 ) is reflected in the x-axis, the new equation will have the same function as the original, but with the sign of the y-values reversed.

So, the new equation after reflecting in the x-axis is ( y = -x^3 - 5 ).
