(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Sketch the following curves on separate number planes.

y= 2x^2

x^2 + 2y^2= 4

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

For the first one, would the intersection of the curve with the y axis be at y=2 ( I have attached a diagram of my solution). The minimum point would be at (0,2)???

For the second one, what do we do with the 2 which is the coefficient of y^2. Would the 4 be the radius of the circle.

Thanks in advance.
