## Make a table of values...

Since we are making a graph we can pick any values of x that we wish...

Since they ask us pick pick values less than or equal to zero that is a good place to start.

so lets start with x = 0, x= -1, x = -2, x = -3

evaluating at the above values

gives the point

if we plot these ordered pairs and connect them with a smooth curve we should be able to answer the question.
