See below

#### Explanation:

How to draw a parabola:

1. Understand what kind of parabola is;

2. Find the coordinates of the vertex;

3. Draw the axis of symmetry;

4. Calculate two points that are distinct and opposite to the axis of symmetry;

You can continue with other points but that's enough.

**Step 1:**

The parabola is given with this kind of equation

**Step 2:**

To find the vertex we can use this formula:

Let's find

Now the vertex:

Right now we can jump to the conclusion that this is also the minimum point since the concavity is upward and even that there is no maximum point.

Infact the range of this parabola is

**Step 3:**

The axis of symmetry is with the x coordinate of the vertex

**Step 4:**

Let's find two points:

Make it simple with
