# How do you sketch the graph of #y=-5x^2# and describe the transformation?

See below :)

The standard

The tranformations, in order are as follows;

- Dilation parallel to the y-axis, scale factor 5

- Reflection about the x-axis

I hope that helps :)

To sketch the graph of (y = -5x^2), start with the parent function (y = x^2) and apply a vertical stretch by a factor of 5 and a reflection over the x-axis. The vertex remains at the origin. The graph opens downwards.
