    In your second graph, it is important the the curve goes through the roots, yours goes underneath them.

    And when they go off to infinity, the curve just gets steeper, it does not start to become shallower as you have for x from 2 to 5 in the first graph, and from x=4 in the second.

    Here's the actual first graph:

    I believe the second one is ever so slightly wrong. In between x = 0 and x = -1 you aren't crossing the x axis which also means your line isn't touching the X axis at 0 or -1. If x = -0.5 you get a value just over 1 for y.

    Similar issue on the top graph as well actually. x = -1 gives y = 3.

    Basically your curves need to be more pronounced.

    Actually no, in your second graph the curve needs to go through (-1,0), (0,0) and (4,0). Between (-1,0) and (0,0) the value of y should be positive . So it goes up and then down.

    Oh so the second one has to go slightly above the x axis?

    Like this instead?

    Yes.

    But you also want to take care of the curvature at the ends.

    Oh, yes it needs to be more of a curve.

    Notice how the ends just get steeper.
