See below.

#### Explanation:

Graph

This will give you the boundary of the regions. Remember to use a dashed line as this is a less than and not a less than or equal to inequality, so the curve will not be an included region.

Test for a coordinate inside the parabola and outside the parabola.

Inside parabola:

FALSE

Outside parabola:

TRUE

Shaded area is outside parabola:

graph{y < x^2-16 [-36.53, 36.57, -18.25, 18.27]}
