Hi,

you have 2 functions. The easiest way to draw the graphs of function is to make a table of x-values with the corresponding y-values.

y = x² Code:

x y
--------------
±3 | 9
±2 | 4
±1 | 1
0 | 0
--------------

The graph of the second function is a straight line:

x - y = 6 ==> **y = x - 6**

To draw this graph you only need 2 points: Code:

x y
-----------
0 | -6
6 | 0
-----------

As you may have noticed I have chosen the intercepts of the graph and the coordinate axes.

I've attached a diagram of **both **graphs.
