Question by KitKat: What is the mathematical relationship of y = x squared?
What type of mathematical relationship is there between the variables?
I know how to draw a parabola, I just don’t know what the relationship is.
That’s what I thought Skywave, but since it says that in the question I don’t think that’s what our teacher wants us to put.

Make two columns. Head one with x and one with y.

Then enter values for x and for y

Example, when x= 2, y = 4, when x = -3, y = 9

Do this with multiple values until you have enough x and y values to draw a graph.

The resulting graph will be a parabola.

Hope this helps

    The mathematical relationship is simply that: y = x²
