Instead of modifying the horizontal and vertical views first, as done for
other types of plot, we will set the lower and upper values of the
independent variable first as follows:

take values of t = 0, 0.1, 0.2, ..., etc., until reaching the value of 2.0.
Press @AUTO. This will generate automatic values of the H-View and V-View
ranges based on the values of the independent variable t and the
