We will generate values of the function f(x), defined above, for values of
x from –5 to 5, in increments of 0.5. First, we need to ensure that the

and the corresponding values of f(x), listed as Y1 by default. You can use
the up and down arrow keys to move about in the table. You will notice
that we did not have to indicate an ending value for the independent
variable x. Thus, the table continues beyond the maximum value for x
suggested early, namely x = 5.
Some options available while the table is visible are @ OOM, @@ IG@,and @DEF :
The @DEF , when selected, shows the definition of the independent variable.
