# How do you graph #y=-x^2+x+12#?

##### 1 Answer

The graph looks like this: graph{-x^2+x+12 [-5, 5, -20, 20]}.

#### Explanation:

Because there is an

Because the *negative*, we know the parabola is in the shape of a downwards U.

First, to find out where the parabola crosses the

Next, let's find the two places where the graph intersects the

So the parabola crosses the

-- (0, 12) -- where it crosses the

-- (4, 0) -- one of the

-- (-3, 0) -- other

So that should be enough information to draw the graph.
