    since you have options, why not just plug and play?

    If you have to graph, I would convert the equation into vertex form.

    and; 18/2 = 9, ^2 = 81 so its a perfect square already

    If you are asked to graph - then you need to know how to graph. Do you understand how to graph the equation?

    Make a T-chart |dw:1327882261999:dw| keep on going till you get a y value of 9. You will notice the trend of lowering y values.
