    plug in the values. remember it's a function when every x value as one and only one y value.

    and it makes a U shape. remember a basic parabola has the formula \[x ^{2}\]

    Make a table of x's and y's. Choose some x's. Calculate a y value for each x. Plot the points. If you can't see the curve yet, you'll need a few more points (x's and y's). That's the simplest way.
