1. Determine a relationship between x- and y-values. Write an equation.

{(1, -1), ( 2, -2), (3, -3), (4, -4)

A: x = -y?

2. How am I supposed to graph y = -x^2 - 7?

  2. you already asked that first question
    http://www.jiskha.com/display.cgi?id=1383600600

    y = -x or x+y=0

    2. you should know what y = x^ looks like
    reflect it in the x-axis to get y = -x^2
    drop it 7 units to get your graph
    or
    make a table of values of about 8-10 points
    e.g (0, -7) , (1, -8), (2, -11) etc
    plot them and join with a smooth curve.
    should look like this:
