Put values of x in the equation and get the corresponding y values. You will get a parabolic graph. You could take points such as 0,-4,4,-8,8, etc.

#### Explanation:

Make a table of 'x' versus 'y'. Now put values of x and find corresponding values for y. In your question, we can start be putting x = 0, hence , y =

x = 4, hence , y =

x = -4, hence , y =

You have to be wise while choosing the values of x to put into the equation so that you get whole number values for y.
