Make a table of ordered pairs for the given function.
Plot these points on the coordinate plane and connect the points with a smooth curve.
The graph looks like the one below:
It can be observed from the graph that the parabola opens upward.
The equation of the axis of symmetry is: = 0.
The vertex is at (0, 0).
The parabola opens up. So the vertex is the minimum point.
Correct Answer is : Graph 2; opens up; = 0; (0, 0); Minimum point
