#### Explanation:

Given -

#y=-4(x+1)^2-5#

It is a parabola equation in the intercept form

#y=a(x+h)^2+k#

Where -

#(h, k)# is the vertex.

In the given equation -

#(-1, -5)# is the vertex.

Choose a few points on either side of the vertex

Find the corresponding

Tabulate them -

Plot all the points. Join with a smooth line
