To graph ( f(x) = -(x+4)^2 + 9 ), follow these steps:

- Identify the vertex, which is the point ((-4, 9)).
- Since the coefficient of (x) is negative, the parabola opens downwards.
- Plot the vertex ((-4, 9)) on the coordinate plane.
- Choose additional points to plot by selecting (x)-values on either side of the vertex and plugging them into the equation to find the corresponding (y)-values.
- Connect the points to form the graph of the quadratic function.
