Well if you need to graph this equation, there is no need of changing the format of the question. Just take random numbers for X and put them in the equation to find the relative values of Y. You'll just need to take 5 or more random values of X.
Just find the x and y intercepts and you'll have a pretty good idea of what the graph looks like, since its a quadratic, it will be a parabola.
Well all you have to do is graph it duh
