To determine

To sketch: The function y=x2 by hand without plotting any points and then graph of the function y=−x2 .

Expert Solution

Explanation of Solution

The standard graph of the function y=x2 is roughly drawn as shown below in Figure 1.

Since the function y=x2 is an odd function, reflect the graph y=x2 about the y-axis.

Thus, the graph of y=x2 is shown below in Figure 2.

From Figure 2, it is observed that the graph is reflecting the Figure 1 about the y-axis.
