Solve graphically.
xy=0
y=x²
The reason I don't understand the question is the second equation with the x². How do I graph that? I'm not sure if I ever graphed with an exponent, and if I did, it was a long time ago.
I'm reposting this because I didn't understand Damon's answer (I don't know what a parabola is) and I doubt anyone would look down again that far. Could you explain it in more simple terms?
Thanks!

For the second equation just graph the points I gave you
(3 9)
(2,4)
(1,1)
(0,0)
(1,1)
(2,4)
(3,9)

Then you will see what a parabola is.

Just so I can know in the future, how exactly did you figure those points out?
Thanks!

I just put in some values of x and calculated y. Of course I had the advantage of knowing what the curve would look like.
