# How do you graph y = -x^2 - 4x + 2?

Jul 22, 2015

Start of by making a table

You should get a parabola

....A parabola is a super curved U(Remember it may be a$+ v e \mathmr{and} - v e$)

#### Explanation:

graph{-x^2 - 4x + 2 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

A you can see the quadratic equation has an ultra large U (INVERTED)

So lemme show you what the table would look like so you could mark the co ordinates

That should do it if you wanna exterd the graph further;
