I know about transformations and how to graph a function like $f(x) = x^2 - 2$. We just shift the graph 2 units down. But in this case, there's an $-4x$ in which the $x$ complicated everything for me. I understand that the graph will be a parabola for the degree of the function is 2, but I'm not exactly sure how I can graph it.
I can take various values for $x$ and then calculate $f(x)$, but I don't wanna do that. So, how do I plot something like this?
