Do you have a little more context? What you've sent us graphs a parabola that looks like this:
It can also be re-written as:
x/z + z = 0
x = -z(2) -- (i.e. negative Z squared)
This is interesting though, because for positive values of X, some solutions require taking the square root of a negative number.
So let's set x=4
can then rewrite it so that
4 = -z^2 (to the power of 2)
If you guys are working with complex/imaginary numbers, then that may be more in line with what your teacher is trying to get you to work on.
Hope that helps!
