## togoodtobetrue4u 3 years ago Need help with this graphing problem y=x2+1y;=|X|

1. mareoraft

When you say "x2", do you mean "x*2"? When you say y;=|X|, do you mean y=|x|?

2. togoodtobetrue4u

x to the second power and What it's asking me is to make a table of each value then graph theach equation

I still don't understand the question. You need to type it clearly and correctly. Grammar is very important in math.

First equation: y = x^2 + 1. So you want to try some values of x, and see what y they give. x=-2, this gives y=5. So graph the point (-2,5). Now try x=-1, this gives y=2. So graph the point (-1,2). Do this also for x=0 and x=1 and x=2. This should give you an idea of what the function looks like. Draw a line going through all the points you graphed to see what the function looks like. Second equation: follow the same procedure.

Your table of values will look like this. I didn't finish it. |dw:1335240982391:dw|
