(2) The equation x2 − y 4 = 0
x + y2 is rewritten as
x − y2 = 0. Hence the equation represents the union of two parabolas, whose vertices are both
at the origin. The x-coordinate axis serves as the axes for both parabolas. The
y -coordinate axis serves as the tangent lines for both parabolas at the origin. The
whole graph is mirror symmetric along both the x- and the y -oordinate axes. 3...
