Divide both sides of the equation by $9$ to obtain: $\dfrac{9y}{9}=\dfrac{x^2}{9} \\y = \dfrac{x^2}{9}$ To graph the given equation, perform the following steps: (1) Create a table of values by assigning values to $x$ then solving for the corresponding value of $y$ for each one. (Refer to the attached image below) (2) Plot each ordered pair from the table of values then connect the points using a smooth curve to form a parabola. (Refer to the attached image in the answer part above for the graph.)
