This graph will be a parabola since one of the terms are squared.

#### Explanation:

The

- Use a table: Choose some
#x# values and put them into an#x# and#y# table. Calculate the#y# values by subbing the#x# values into the given equation. Then graph the coordinates from the table. - Since the quadratic formula is given to vertex form, plot the vertex which is (0,0) and use the step pattern which is
#8/3# to graph the other coordinates.

In the end, your graph should look like the one given below.

graph{y=8/3 x^2 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

To describe the transformation use "RST". In other words, describe the reflection of the parabola if there is one, then the stretch or compression factor and then lastly the translation.
