I want to make the equation $y=(x-1)^3+0.98$ flatten out after $x=1$ without using a piece-wise function. How can I this? enter image description here

What do you mean by flatten out? – Pragabhava Nov 12 '12 at 6:02
"Piece-wise function" doesn't make sense. I assume you mean to avoid a piece-wise definition for the a function. Can you explain your motivation? – Hurkyl Nov 12 '12 at 7:36

Do you have a particular asymptote in mind? What changes to your function are allowed? What you plotted is not the function you quote: $ (4-1)^3+0.98=26.98$, not $1.22$
