Explanation of Solution

Given information:consider the function f(x)=x24 .

Calculation:

Take any values of x and then make a table of values.

  xf(x)=x241(1)24=32(2)24=00(0)24=41(1)24=32(2)24=0

Then, plot the points given by the table and join them by a smooth curve to obtain the graph f(x)=x24 as shown below:
