To graph the given equation we calculate the domain and range and plot the points. We calculate the range for the values x= -2, 0, 2 $y= -\frac{1}{2}x^{2}$ x=-2 $y= -\frac{1}{2}(-2)^{2}$ $y= -\frac{1}{2}(-2)(-2)$ $y= -2$ x=0 $y= -\frac{1}{2}(0)^{2}$ $y= -\frac{1}{2}(0)(0)$ $y= 0$ x=2 $y= -\frac{1}{2}(2)^{2}$ $y= -\frac{1}{2}(2)(2)$ $y= -2$ (-2,-2) (0,0) (2, -2) We plot the points and connect the graph to get the final graph
