Graph Of The Exponential Function - HP 50g User Manual

Graphing calculator.

Next, press ‚@@@X@@@ to see the contents of this variable. A value of 10.275 is
placed in the stack. This value is determined by our selection for the horizontal
display range. We selected a range between -1 and 10 for X. To produce
the graph, the calculator generates values between the range limits using a
constant increment, and storing the values generated, one at a time, in the
variable @@@X@@@ as the graph is drawn. For the horizontal range ( –1,10), the
increment used seems to be 0.275. When the value of X becomes larger than
the maximum value in the range (in this case, when X = 10.275), the drawing
of the graph stops. The last value of X for the graphic under consideration is
kept in variable X. Delete X and Y1 before continuing.
