Work Step by Step

Start with $f_{1}(x)=x^{4}$. $f(x)=x^{4}+2= f_{1}(x)+2$, the graph of $f$ is obtained by translating $f_{1}$ two units upward. Create a table of several function values and plot points $(x,f_{1}(x)).$ Take the points obtained in the table, translate them two units upward and join with a smooth curve.
