This question already has an answer here:
What I'm looking for is graphs that can be generated very easily? for eg just an x-y graph with some linear function or quadratic/cubic/quartic to be plotted? a general case nothing specific without numbered axis etc. I need to be able to distinguish between cases where I have different roots for eg for some general cubic i could have 2 negative and 1 positive etc is there a very easy way to do this? where i can just move different degree polynomials around a graph? I'm no expert using tikz well to be honest i wouldn't know the first thing about it. Also if some generic parabola can be added anywhere is the positive quartile and "slid" up and down anywhere... I don't need anyone to write up code just a push in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
