    There are two ways you can do this 1) plot a bunch of points and connect them with a curve 2) use a graphing calculator like TI83 or something like desmos https://www.desmos.com/calculator

    if you use method 1), then you plug in various values of x to get the corresponding values of y example: if x = 0, then \[\Large y = \frac{-x^2-2x-2}{x-2}\] \[\Large y = \frac{-0^2-2(0)-2}{0-2}\] \[\Large y = 1\] so the point (0,1) lies on the function curve. To find other points, you follow the same steps for different x values. The only thing not allowed is x = 2.

    How would the graph look on desmos because it isn't workinf for me
