    is the line up or down for graphing y = –2x² + 2

    1) this is a quadratic and cannot be a "line". It is a "curve"

    it will first increase from -infinity, then reach a maximum and then decrease

    yep. So, it first increases and then decreases. did you study derivatives?

    curve is under the x axis and downward.. at x = 0 it peak

    at y =0 you can find x value and at x= 0 find value of y...

    if you had studied derivatives, this becomes way easier
