Graph the function by hand, not by plotting points, but by starting with the graph of one of the standard functions given in Section 1.2, and then applying the appropriate transformations.

$ y = - x^2 $

$y=-x^{2}:$ Start with the graph of $y=x^{2}$ and reflect about the $x$ -axis.

our goal list a graph the opposite of X Squared y calls the opposite of X squared. So we'll start with the standard graph y equals X squared. And that's your basic problem that opens up and has a Vertex at 00 So the change that would take place because of the negative sign is to reflect it across the X axis, so the graph that were interested in then would look like this.
