Then use your table to graph the function.Answer by jim_thompson5910(28595)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!In order to generate ordered pairs, we need to plot evaluate some x values to get some y values to get the points. So let's find the first point: Start with the given function Plug in Raise -5 to the 2nd power to get 25 Multiply 1 and 25 to get 25 Subtract 3 from 25 to get 22 So when , we have So our 1st point is (-5,22) -------------- Let's find another point -------------- Start with the given function Plug in Raise -4 to the 2nd power to get 16 Multiply 1 and 16 to get 16 Subtract 3 from 16 to get 13 So when , we have So our 2nd point is (-4,13) -------------- Let's find another point -------------- Start with the given function Plug in Raise -3 to the 2nd power to get 9 Multiply 1 and 9 to get 9 Subtract 3 from 9 to get 6 So when , we have So our 3rd point is (-3,6) -------------- Let's find another point -------------- Start with the given function Plug in Raise -2 to the 2nd power to get 4 Multiply 1 and 4 to get 4 Subtract 3 from 4 to get 1 So when , we have So our 4th point is (-2,1) -------------- Let's find another point -------------- Start with the given function Plug in Raise -1 to the 2nd power to get 1 Multiply 1 and 1 to get 1 Subtract 3 from 1 to get -2 So when , we have So our 5th point is (-1,-2) -------------- Let's find another point -------------- Start with the given function Plug in Raise 0 to the 2nd power to get 0 Multiply 1 and 0 to get 0 Subtract 3 from 0 to get -3 So when , we have So our 6th point is (0,-3) -------------- Let's find another point -------------- Start with the given function Plug in Raise 1 to the 2nd power to get 1 Multiply 1 and 1 to get 1 Subtract 3 from 1 to get -2 So when , we have So our 7th point is (1,-2) -------------- Let's find another point -------------- Start with the given function Plug in Raise 2 to the 2nd power to get 4 Multiply 1 and 4 to get 4 Subtract 3 from 4 to get 1 So when , we have So our 8th point is (2,1) -------------- Let's find another point -------------- Start with the given function Plug in Raise 3 to the 2nd power to get 9 Multiply 1 and 9 to get 9 Subtract 3 from 9 to get 6 So when , we have So our 9th point is (3,6) -------------- Let's find another point -------------- Start with the given function Plug in Raise 4 to the 2nd power to get 16 Multiply 1 and 16 to get 16 Subtract 3 from 16 to get 13 So when , we have So our 10th point is (4,13) -------------- Let's find another point -------------- Start with the given function Plug in Raise 5 to the 2nd power to get 25 Multiply 1 and 25 to get 25 Subtract 3 from 25 to get 22 So when , we have So our 11th point is (5,22) Now lets make a table of the values we have calculated ``` xy -522 -413 -36 -21 -1-2 0-3 1-2 21 36 413 522 ``` Now plot the points. Note: you need to use Firefox to see the next two graphs. Now connect the points to graph (note: the more points you plot, the easier it is to draw the graph)
