x-intercepts $(-5, 0)$ and $(5, 0)$ y-intercept $(0, -4)$
This graph has two x-intercepts at $(-5, 0)$ and $(5, 0)$ and one y-intercept located at the vertex, $(0, -4)$. This graph IS a function since the vertical line (from the Vertical Line Test) would intersect the graph at only one point at any given time.
