## Thinking Mathematically (6th Edition)

To graph the given equation, perform the following steps: (1) Create a table of values by assigning $x=-3, -2 , -1, 0, 1, 2, 3$ and then solving for the corresponding y-value of each one. (2) Plot each ordered pair from the table of values, and then connect the points using a curve to form a parabola.
