graph{x^2+2 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

#### Explanation:

This is a transformation of a parabola along the y-axis;

graph{x^2 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

graph{x^2+2 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

You can always plug in values to plot if you'e unsure about the rules of transformations, but they are summarized below. Here we had +2 to y so the graph shifted up.
