    Do you know what the function should look like?

    Well that is a good start already. To work out the axis of symmetry, you need to work out the maximum y value, for example. To sketch the graph - you need to know some points |dw:1370231232831:dw|

    Set y = 0 and solve the equation for x.

    This function never crosses the x axis, therefore there would be no solutions for x.
