# How do you graph #y=-3x^2+2#?

##### 1 Answer

Find the axis of symmetry and vertex. Determine points on both sides of the parabola. Sketch a curve through the points.

#### Explanation:

Because

The axis of symmetry is superimposed on the y-axis.

We also need to find the vertex, which is the maximum point of the parabola. The value

The vertex equals

Now determine some points on both sides of the axis of symmetry.

Plot the vertex and the other points. Draw a curve through the the points. Do not connect the dots.
