 Question 138046This question is from textbook texas algebra 1 : Ehhhhh i dont like graphs, but most people do. everytime i plug in some numbers and then graph it, it ends up to be a straight line instead of a U shape: Parabola Exploring Quadratic Graphs: 8. y = -1/3x^2 14. f(x) = x^2 + 2 18. y = -2x^2 + 2 please and thank you! you dont have to do all three.This question is from textbook texas algebra 1 Answer by stanbon(57342)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Exploring Quadratic Graphs: 8. y = -1/3x^2 If x = 0, y = 0 If x = 1, y = -1/3 If x = -1, y = -1/3 If x = 2, y = -4/3 If x = -2, y = -4/3 etc. ------------------------ 14. f(x) = x^2 + 2 If x = 0, y = 2 If x = 1, y = 3 If x =-1, y = 3 If x = 2, y = 6 If x =-2, y = 6 etc. Cheers, Stan H.
