I am graphing a parabola for a calculus problem. I understand how you factor and use the two x values as your x-intercepts, but i'm not sure how this one would be graphed.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

y=4x^2 - 25. I understand how the vertex of the parabola would be at negative 25, but I have no clue what to do woith the 4x^2.

Help would be appreciated. thanks.
